Beskrivning av projektet
The proposed research focuses on the logical investigation of causal and counterfactual dependence notions that occur in manipulationist theories of causation. Team semantics is a framework that supports a logical treatment of dependencies and independencies that arise in observational data; the key aim of this research project is the development of appropriate generalizations of team semantics that may also represent interventionist counterfactuals and the related causal notions. Such formalisms will be used for providing more solid foundations for causal discourse and clarifying the relationship between Lewis-Stalnaker and interventionist counterfactuals.
