Abstract and Keywords

Kant thought that people have special dispositions to perceive and use causal relations, and recent psychological research addresses this idea. Causal relations have been implicated in a wide range of cognitive processes, from choosing actions to understanding complex systems, and in nonhuman animals as well as people. Recent work in philosophy and in psychology proposes that network models and the centrality of interventions can provide a unifying framework for causal reasoning. But there are good reasons to doubt that this unification can succeed.

Keywords: Kant, causation, causal cognition
