Examine the main concepts of Hard Determinism
Hard Determinism can be defined by Baruch Spinoza’s quote: ‘In the mind there is no absolute or free will; but the mind is determined to will this or that by a cause, which has been determined by another cause…and so on to infinity’. This basically means that humans do not have free will, and that all moral actions have prior causes.
Hard Determinism follows the Principle of Causality, which states that everything has a cause, and every cause has an effect. In our universe, there are certain laws of nature which govern everything that happens. All of our actions come about as a direct result of these scientific laws, and each choice we make was

causality. In countries like America we show blame and other countries show what happened with no blame.
Although, language is not only about causality, but also talked through time and space. When it comes to time Boroditsky explains how, “English speakers arrange time from left to right,” however, “Hebrew speakers do it from right to left” (Boroditsky L. 2010). Although, there are cultures where they do not use just time but rather time and space. Pormpuraawans, were found to not use right and left, but instead use east to west. Languages such as Kuuk Thaayorre rely on absolute direction of space. Pormpuraawans describe things with north, south, east and west. For example, Americans would

field of speculative philosophy quite a new direction. Hume was an empiricist,
believing that all knowledge comes originally through sensory experience. Hume explained that things
such as space and time did not really exist, but were concepts that the mind employed in order to make
sense of reality. Likewise, Hume pointed out that there are no such thing as real causes and effects.
Instead, causality is simply a mental construct which allows us to understand things in a predictable and
practical way. Kant embraced this insight, and made it the basis for his philosophy. While Hume had

. Traditionalist vs behavioristTaking place in the 1960's, this was essentially a methodological debate revolving around the belief of Behaviouralists that IR could only advance itself by applying the methods of naturalist science. They believed that the field was too dominated by historians, who they labelled Traditionalists, who took the view that IR should be developed through more interpretive historicist methods.Behaviouralist focus was on the opinion of systems and that those analyses, and any subsequent hypotheses of causality, should be subject to empirical testing, mainly via deception. That way knowledge in IR could be progressively built up, allowing for greater intuitions and progress in

everything do to others as you would have them do to you: for this is the law and the prophets." (Matthew 7:12 NRSV) This helps to explain why they do not harm others or cause them suffering.
Causality, the simple fact of why things happen and for what reasons, was taught by the Buddhists to explain different events in their world. This flows directly into the concept of karma. With both good and bad karma existing, the Buddhist can create a method of action based on the karma associated with that object or being. Things with positive karma will boost their own sense of karma and make them more fulfilled. Yet, the things with negative karma warn the Buddhists not to partake in these

drug abuse grows. If we stop the marijuana, we will stop the rest of drug abuse". I have several issues with this statement: first, the simple fact that many heroin and cocaine users used marijuana first does not conclude that the latter is the result of the first. Correlation is not causality. Bierson’s vehement argument against marijuana alone become suspect, as most of these heroin and cocaine abusers had also previously used alcohol and tobacco. According to government surveys, a conservative estimate of 80 million American have tried marijuana in their life, and 20 million admit to using it recently; if marijuana were truly a gateway drug, we would see a higher percentage of regular users

radioactive particle from and unstable atom, but the reason for
radioactive emission is that the atom's nucleus is unstable. So the radioactive
particle is contingent upon the unstable nucleus. In other words contingency does
not break down at the subatomic level , even though causality does break down.
Therefore the argument does not fail as there are still contingent beings.
Overall, it is clear that Aquinas is trying to prove the existence of God through the
cosmological arguments . The first two ways fail due to scientific discoveries but the
third way succeeds due to the idea that everything has a reason for existence. God
is the necessary being that came first as contingent beings could not exists out of
nothing and so there must have been something prior to their existence.

On the other hand, Oedipus the King is a tragedy of a man who struggles to escape the fated destiny but finally falls into the consequences foreseen in the prophecy. Although they take different or far-flung plots to unfold their stories, they both actually are rooted in Causality, which is the notion that consequences are related to behaviors. Therefore, comparing between the Odyssey and Oedipus the King, there are similarities along with differences in the core meaning of the works.

brain, but have no effect on any real event. Behaviour is caused by muscles that undergo nerve impulse contraction, which is produced by the input of other neurons or sensory organs.
The core motivation of epiphenomenalism lies in the premise that anything that can cause a real event by causality must itself be a physical event. If a psychological event is not a physical event, then any causal contribution in the physical world needs to violate physical law. The interaction model of Descartes' (1649) suggests that non-material events may result in small changes in the shape of the pineal gland. However, this immaterial effect, no matter how slight, means that the physical description of the

In such situations, the solution may be that of taking the focus off the cycle of blame and recrimination that had begun. This may even be done by one side or the other seeming to take responsibility for what happened in the past. Kottler recommends this in some situations, as it may deflect the energies involved in the conflict to other areas.This involves assuming a commitment to act differently from the way one has acted in the past.

Moreover, limited testing exists that incorporates the SDT comprehensively, despite the strong correlation between autonomy, competence and relatedness with exhaustion, sense of accomplishment and sport devaluation (characteristics of burnout).

However, correlation studies also have their limitations, such as providing superficial
information about a person (Cervone & Pervin, 2010). “A correlational study will provide information about an individual’s scores on the various personality tests that happen to have been used in research” (Cervone & Pervin, 2010, p. 58). The second limitation is similar to a case study, “in a correlational study it is difficult to draw firm conclusions about causality” (Cervone & Pervin, 2010, p. 58).

a phenomenal concept and a physical state. One way of
defending the knowledge argument would be to describe Mary’s new knowledge not
in terms of a phenomenal state but instead in terms of Qualia. For instance, the
concept of red cannot be fully understood by someone who has never seen the
colour red, no matter how well its physical properties are described. This therefore
implies that in addition to having a physical cause, an experience can also have a
phenomenal cause. Jackson describes this as Epiphenomenalism. This is the idea
that qualia is caused by experiences in the physical world however one can exist
without the other and there is no causality. Jackson first argues that it is

the same methods used in the natural sciences can be used in social science. Like in natural science, theory is used to produce a hypothesis and this can be verified through observation. Through explanatory theories, positivists give predictions which are tested by direct observation (Marsh and Stoker 2010: 25). Through a positivist lens, by using quantitative research discover causal relations and establish law-like generalisations about social phenomenon. Causality matters very much to those who adopt Positivism. Hume believed knowledge comes from our senses and he considered the implications of ‘cause’ and ‘effect’ within observation. By experiencing knowledge from our senses we can

Aquinas' second argument is influenced by AristotleIn Aquinas' second argument from efficient causality to explain God's existence are series of events that happened in order to cause something. If something happens it must be a caused by something outside itself; nothing can happen on its own, and so no effect can happen if you take away the cause. Again, Aquinas says that the series of events cannot go onto infinity because there would be no first cause, which the effect is depended on the first cause, and that is what "everyone gives the name God" (Melchert 278).Aquinas' second argument is

we want to show oﬀ what we have.

· Control - through sampling and design
· Ability to produce causality statements, through the use of controlled experiments
· Statistical techniques allow for sophisticated analyses
· Because of the complexity of human experience it is difficult to rule out or control all the variables;
· Because of human agency people do not all respond in the same ways as inert matter in the physical sciences;

causality in which great deeds, words, contemplations, and directions lead to useful impacts for an individual, and terrible deeds, words, musings, and directions lead to hurtful impacts (Edwards, 2002). These impacts are not really prompt but rather can be visited upon a spirit in future lives through rebirth; also, positive or negative fortune experienced in life might be the aftereffect of fortunate or unfortunate activities performed in a previous existence. One's karmic state influences the resurrection of the spirit: great karma may prompt rebirth as a human while terrible karma can prompt resurrection as a creature or other type of non-human life (Penney, 2013).

Mr. Boydston and his students at the university conducted experiments, used models and imagined what would happen to the behavior of polymers when polymers undergo mechanical stress. This is a field of chemistry called polymer mechanochemistry. Creating models of star polymers on a 2-D plain, it was understood that using mechanical force on the bonds, it breaks the polymer chain, generating a spontaneous response.
