By Galen Strawson
It really is extensively intended that David Hume invented and espoused the "regularity" conception of causation, retaining that causal family members are not anything yet an issue of 1 form of factor being frequently by way of one other. it's also largely intended that he was once not just correct approximately this, yet that it was once one in all his maximum contributions to philosophy. Strawson right here argues that the regularity concept of causation is indefensible, and that Hume by no means followed it as a minimum. Strawson keeps that Hume didn't declare that causation within the flora and fauna is simply an issue of normal succession, that one of these dogmatic metaphysical declare in regards to the nature of truth could were completely opposite to his basic philosophical rules, and that he rightly took it with no consideration that there has been extra to causation than regularity of succession, claiming merely that regularity of succession used to be all that lets ever be aware of of causation.
