Causation is everywhere in the world: it features in every science and technology. But how much do we understand it? Mumford and Anjum develop a new theory of causation based on an ontology of real powers or dispositions. They provide the first detailed outline of a thoroughly dispositional approach, and explore its surprising features.
Stephen Mumford is Professor of Metaphysics and Head of the School of Humanities at the University of Nottingham. He gained his PhD from Leeds in 1994 and then wrote Dispositions (OUP 1998), Laws in Nature (Routledge 2004), and David Armstrong (Acumen 2007), as well as editing Russell on Metaphysics (Routledge 2003) and George Molnar’s Powers (OUP 2003). He was co-investigator in the AHRC-funded project Metaphysics of
Science and has been Chair of the British Philosophy of Sport Association. He is currently writing a book on sport: Watching Sport: Aesthetics, Ethics and Emotions.
Rani Lill Anjum is Associate Professor at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences and Project Leader of ‘CauSci – Causation in Science’, a 4 year research project funded by the FRIHUM program at the Research Council of Norway (NFR). She received her doctorate from the University of Tromsø on the logic of conditionals, followed by a 3 year postdoctoral project at Tromsø and Nottingham on causation and dispositions, both funded by NFR’s FRIHUM program.
