Ruben David-Hillel

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces two versions of the agent causalist theory (ACT). One version is involved in a reification that is gratuitous; the other version is rejected on other grounds. It argues that all three theories — the causal theory and both versions of the ACT — share an assumption that is identified and rejected.
