Question

    ”Explain how both Russell and Anscombe object to accounts of causation1 that take causes to be sufficient for their effects. When it comes to their own views on causation2, however, they radically diverge. Explain the position each takes on causation3. In particular, explain the way in which Anscombe departs from Hume when it comes to the epistemology of causal relations.
