    Dynamics in Action
    Intentional Behavior as a Complex System
    Alicia Juarrero
    Alicia Juarrero argues that a mistaken, 350-year-old model of cause and
    explanation--one that takes all causes to be of the push-pull, efficient
    cause sort, and all explanation to be prooflike--underlies contemporary
    theories of action. Juarrero then proposes a new framework for
    conceptualizing causes based on complex adaptive systems.
