Three Concepts of Cause in Newton's Thought, Part 2
Andrew Janiak, Duke University
Dr. Andrew Janiak examined how Newton's assertion that objects spread across space can interact causally is related to his endorsement of the traditional metaphysical concepts of substance and of causation. This lecture took place on April 1, 2011 at The University of Western Ontario as part of the Rotman Institute of Philosophy Speaker Series.
