The Causal Universe

The Causal Universe


A collection of essays dealing with causality, a core issue for both science and philosophy. The Reader will learn about different types of causality in complex systems and about new perspectives on this issue based on physical and cosmological considerations. In addition, the collection includes essays pertaining to the problem of causality in ancient Greek philosophy, and to the problem of God’s relation to the causal structures of nature viewed in the light of contemporary physics and cosmology.
