Lewis V 125
Definition Humean World/Hume World/Causality/Jackson/Lewis: (Jackson 1977): a Humean World is a possible world in which all single facts are exactly the same as in ours, only that there are no causes. Every regular conjunction is random.
Lewis: I'm not sure if there's any coincidence in Jackson's world. If so, then the false laws are like our false laws about the lifetime (of atoms or humans).

Schwarz I 111
Humesche Supervenienz/Schwarz: eine Minimalversion, die Lewis aber zu schwach ist wäre: wann immer eine Welt ohne fremdartige Eigenschaften in der Verteilung der exakt übereinstimmt, stimmt sie auch in jeder anderen (qualitativen) Hinsicht mit unserer überein. (vgl. die analoge Def Physikalismus (Jackson 1994a,§2 und Chalmers 1996a,38 41).
