Richard Rorty
Causality VI 128f
Causality / Davidson: Rorty: (implicitly found in his writings): causal effect only at the level of microstructure, so just where strict laws apply and no "ceteris paribus molecules or space-time points clauses" occur. (RortyVs ?).
VI 129f
Causality / Rorty: you should always be able to recognize exactly the same causal relations between these same, but arbitrarily described things: eg between dinosaurs and eggs, you should realize the same causal relations like between the respective molecules or space-time points. (As Davidson). This has nothing to do with "intrinsical" or "thing in itself"!
