What Can You Do with Causal Models? Grounding, Levels, Individuation of Properties
(Plenarvortrag, Englisch, Ort: HS E.002)

Causal models have become one of the most popular tools for analyzing the concept of causation. Moreover, several authors have recently pointed out that the formal framework of causal models can be used to analyze other metaphysically relevant notions. In this paper, I will explore the advantages and the limitations of this approach. In particular, I will consider the notions of grounding, levels and the problem of property individuation and investigate to what extent we can use causal models to gain metaphysical insights about them.
