(p.105) 6 The Occasionalism of Louis de la Forge

Oxford University Press

There seems to be some disagreement over the extent of La Forge’s commitment to occasionalism. This chapter considers La Forge’s arguments with respect to body-body relations, mind-body relations, and mental events alone, and concludes that La Forge’s occasionalism was only partial, since he allowed for real causal powers in the mind.
