From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In philosophy, a causal chain is an ordered sequence of events in which any one event in the chain causes the next. Some philosophers[who?] believe causation relates facts, not events, in which case the meaning is adjusted accordingly.
- "In such a chain, too, or succession of objects, each part is caused by that which preceded it, and causes that which succeeds it." David Hume, "Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion" Part 9.
