Question

    ”Explain what it means to be a strong reductionist about causal relations. Tooley offers four arguments in favor of his realist account of causal relations. One of these is the argument from the possibility of indeterministic laws. Explain, by describing a specific example, how this argument is supposed to serve as an objection to the dominant reductionist view.”
