Listing *The Non-Reductivist’s Troubles with Mental Causation* (1993)
Jaegwon Kim suggested that the only remaining alternatives are the
eliminativist’s standpoint or plain denial of the mind’s causal powers if
we want to uphold the closure of the physical and reject causal
overdetermination at the same time. Nevertheless, explaining stock market
trends by referring to investors’ fear of loss is a very familiar example
of attributing reality to both domains and acknowledging the mind’s
interaction with the world: “if you pick a physical event and trace its
causal ancestry or posterity, you may run into mental events” (Kim 1993).
In this talk I will use the formal framework of Bayes net causal models in
an interventionist understanding (as devised, e.g., by Judea Pearl in
*Causality*, 2000) to make the concept of *causal influence* precise.
Investigating structurally similar cases of conflicting causal intuitions
will motivate a non-Markovian, yet natural extension of the interventionist
Bayes net framework, *Causal Knowledge Patterns*, in which our intuition
that the mind makes a difference finds an expression.
