|Causes: whether something is a physical cause of something depends on the separation of two objects or processes that are to be identified as cause and effect, as well as the transmission of energy. Whether this relationship comes about is therefore contingent. From a linguistic point of view, the relationship between cause and effect is a necessary relation since the concept of the cause is applied only to something which has an effect. See also de re, de dicto, necessity, contingency, causality, effect._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Ries II 100
Cause/Effect/Nietzsche: If we no longer believe in the subject, then also the belief in working things, in interaction, cause and effect disappears. Also, the "thing per se" falls because this is basically the conception of a "subject per se". The contrast between "thing per se" and "appearance" is untenable, so the term "appearance" also falls. (NietzscheVsKant).
