Dynamics in Action
Intentional Behavior as a Complex System
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.
