Causality III 259
Causality/Putnam: the use of causal terms to explain reference is circular in that our relevant interests involve certain skills.
III 84f
But it is about simple explanations e.g. why the pot did not work normally - no physically complex facts - the physical facts themselves do not distinguish between constraints and triggers.
III 206
Causality/Putnam: explains the reference of individual words - but not the truth of sentences.
