This chapter argues that previous accounts of extrapolation, either by reference to capacities or mechanisms, do not adequately address the challenges confronting extrapolation. It then begins the account of how the mechanisms approach can be developed so as to do better. The central concept in this account is what I term comparative process tracing.

Keywords:   capacities, mechanisms, process tracing, animal extrapolation, animal research
