Why theories of causality need production: An information transmission account.
Philosophy and Technology
95 - 114.
In this paper, I examine the comparatively neglected intuition of production regarding causality. I begin by examining the weaknesses of current production accounts of causality. I then distinguish between giving a good production account of causality and a good account of production. I argue that an account of production is needed to make sense of vital practices in causal inference. Finally, I offer an information transmission account of production based on John Collier's work that solves the primary weaknesses of current production accounts: applicability and absences. © Springer-Verlag 2010.
