|Causality||Geach I 41
Causality/explanation/McTaggart: his formulation "in view of" instead of "because": is not causal.
N.B./Geach: because of the missing causality something can also be mistakenly considered an X by someone even if it is not X! The (false) believe is then the cause of the attribution.
N.B.: now I do not admire someone in relation to my own believe!
Surely gods would have no false belief, but we can nevertheless make this distinction:
The gods love something in terms of being pious, and not in relation to one's own attitude to it.
But one must distinguish exactly: the attitude is already the reason (causally!)
But it does not provide the property (characteristic) in relation to which it is loved.
