Abstract:

Many common approximation methods in physics practice ‘causal process avoidance’ in their operative procedures and such methodologies weave densely throughout the usual fabric of ‘classical mechanics’. It is observed that Hume was unable to find any grounding for a robust conception of ‘cause’ largely because he unwittingly looked in those regions of mechanics where genuine causal processes had already been tacitly expunged.
