Ewing’s Cause

A comparative discussion of A.C. Ewing’s chapter on Cause, (1951).

The paper will refer to varied ideas from mainly religious subjects in discussing Ewing’s view of Cause in philosophy, including non-Western philosophy, in addition to comments that may refer to contemporary Physics and Anthropology. In general, an effort will be made to fully explain Ewing’s review in the light of examples and perhaps contradictions in a range of sources. A brief outline of the chapter will introduce the paper, allowing an uninformed reader to gain more from three main sections.
