[catalogued under 26. Natural Theory / C. Causation / 4. Naturalised causation]

Full Idea

Is it not very plausible that negative causations supervene on the positive causations together with the laws that govern the positive causations?

Gist of Idea

Negative causations supervene on positive causations plus their laws?

A Reaction

This obviously has a naturalistic appeal, since all causation can then be based on the actual world.
