Causality 372f
Causality / empiricism / Wessel: we have introduced c. so that we first received a class of statements as being about emprical relationships and say only what is an empirical relationship.
  Causality / force / Wessel: paradox: if two equal forces are applied from opposite sides, the body remains at rest - solution: conditions are missing - Paradox of the relationship: if z from X and V from Y, then appears to follow from X + Y + z + v, but not, if the forces are contradictory - solution: tendency predicates: "the body has a tendency to move" simultaneous contradictory tendencies are not mutually exclusive.
I 375
Causality / Cause / logic / science / Wessel: some causes are construed as transitive, others not, so there are several types of causal relationships.
