|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).

Causation/Observation/Quantum Theory/Feyerabend: Einstein, Podolski, Rosen/EPR: Analysis by Bohr: There are changes which are not the result of a causal effect of the observer on the object, but a change in conditions: e.g. if a rubber band A is stretched, the truth value of the statement "rubber band A is shorter than rubber band B" changes from true to false without effects taking place between A and B._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
