|Causality: causality is the relation between two (separate) entities, whereby a state change of the one entity causes the state of the other entity to change. Nowadays it is assumed that an energy transfer is crucial for talking about a causal link.|
D. Hume was the first to consistently deny the observability of cause and effect. (David Hume Eine Untersuchung über den menschlichen Verstand, Hamburg, 1993, p. 95).

Causality / Danto: Causal processes contain representation states as causes or effects.
We evaluate a causal process only as an action if the effect is not only caused by the representation, but the representation makes both true!
Causality takes place only between material conditions.
"make true" /Danto: causality is always material, representations are made true - embodied._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
