Causation, Physics, and the Constitution of Reality

Russell's Republic Revisited

Edited by Huw Price and Richard Corry

The difference between cause and effect seems obvious and crucial in ordinary life, yet missing from modern physics. Almost a century ago, Bertrand Russell called the law of causality "a relic of a bygone age". In this important collection 13 leading scholars revisit Russell's revolutionary conclusion, discussing one of the most significant and puzzling issues in contemporary thought.
