Question

    ”Describe Lewis’s counterfactual theory of causation1. Discuss a normal case of causation2, and explain Lewis’s procedure for evaluating the relevant counterfactual. Next explain, by discussing a different example, how Lewis uses his counterfactual theory to handle cases of epiphenomenalism that, he thinks, pose problems for the regularity theorist.”
