The Argument from Causation

  • Georges Dicker
Part of the Philosophical Studies Series in Philosophy book series (PSSP, volume 22)


In this chapter I shall consider the main ‘scientific’ argument for the introduction of sense-data, the argument from Causation. I shall try to show that the argument has force only insofar as it is really an epistemological argument, and that its force derives from its calling attention to a dimension of the epistemological problem of perception that we have so far not considered.
