Let us give a counterpart explanation of causation. My first problem set is in the extension of F. Outlining the Frege-Mill theory, Socrates is mortal. I have to capture access problems. I have to show that there can be a model in which Socrates is true. I will go to work with the whole part in my head, the sum of which is null.

Let

*b*be a part of itself, and let

*q*be a part of itself. Let us consider what we get if we move to a polar framework. Moving between the biggest poles, we have a path between variables. For higher arities, our polar journeys make stops. Making stops is a matter of having a certain sort of constitution, together with a host of environmental constraints.

But this cannot be. For if the Frege-Mill theory is true, then the problem set is not in the extension of F, and Socrates may not be mortal in this scenario. Therefore our counterpart explanation has failed.

Deer sir, I believe youir "countexample" is incorrect!

ReplyDeleteLet b be that saturated path which has the shortest distance to an x of arbitrary complexity. Now if b is a truth mole, it reads a sequence from its extension according to the rules of the binding relation. Therefore your argument is an erroneous one.

You write "but this cannot be" - but here you modal is off. You haven't given, as it were, a customer base against which your performance can be evaluated.

My own view is staunch reliabilist compatibilism, with a sprinkling of plenary mechanics and graph theory to round out the foundations. It's a really cool little view, and it definitely succeeds in avoiding this sort of "counterexample" you may think you have provided! I know better. But I respect you and I respect this blog. I really love this platform, and I truly mean that. For the bettermanst of mankind and all human souls, and animals, have a safe sleep after you read my objection and process its great philosophical significance! Only joking. OK< I've gotta go now and catch a bus. This comment, as they say, was too long because I did not have the time to make it shorter! Haha. OK, seriously, bye now!!

HAH!
