artifact description
Using Jim Woodward's counterfactual dependency account of causality as an example, this paper argues that causal claims cannot be fuitfully analyzed by including the truth or falsity of counterfactuals among their truth conditions. The main reasons this derive from my understanding of Nuel Belnap's and his co-authors discussion of predictions about indeterministic systems.
