Agency, Causation, and Empiricism

Davoody Benı, Majıd
Price claims that the agency theory of causation could be understood as a sophisticated form of either realism or empiricism (but not a simple-minded form of any of them). In this paper, I argue that the agency theory could find a more congenial ally in constructive empiricism (rather than realism) and show that this new alliance would be profitable to both constructive empiricism and the agency theory of causation.
