©2016 John-Michael Kuczynski (P)2016 John-Michael Kuczynski
the fast pace, the clarity, the scope
not relevant since non-fiction
he didn't understand the material, got tired towards the middle
yes, the discussion of counterfactual conditionals
better than just about anything any contemporary philosopher has written
"one of the two or three best philosophy books"
I've already listened to it three times. there is so much there
the main one.
he actually kept it light.
impressed by the author's intellect
if you read one philosophy book (or listen to one such book), make this one
"Beyond all belief brilliant"
The most thorough, clear, and insightful book on causality known to me.
The Analysis of Matter by Bertrand Russell, because Causation by K. compares favorably.
He didn't understand the material and his sentences were therefore off.
That there is such a thing as probabilistic causation.
The author is an absolute genius.
"wish i'd read this in college"
a little bit, since hearing it made me really think about it
the discussion of probability
the discussion of the nature of explanatory probability
between probability and certainty
brilliant, clear, and thorough
yes, I did not know that there was so much to know about causation. now I do.
it was non-fiction; only a narrator
yes. another one of jmk's books. hatak was relatively ok this time
saving philosophers of science from themselves
the material on program causation was realliy good
"a great introduction to a complex topic"
the analysis of matter, by bertrand russell, both involve very good, and deep analyses of continuity and other important scientific concepts
the frat boy casualness
the ties that bind
there was a lot of semantics in this book, which didn't think would work, but it did, as i cam to see as i read on
"clear and helpful"
probably, in that it actually flows better than most philosophy books, which becomes clear when you hear it. it's kind of entertaining, which most scholarly works
the logic, the precision
that there are different kinds of causation, and also different theories of causation, but theories of causation should not be confused
good book, not perfect, but worth a listen or two
it was scholarly. the author knows his stuff
the narrative per se was not good. the book was good.
the author didn't understand the book. he sounds like a d.j. he is not a scholar. he was a strange choice, led to real cognitive dissonance
i loved the analytical nature of the prose, the clarity
great book. best book on causation ever. narrator not good. but worth getting
"brilliant book, wretched narrator"
the clarity and forcefulness of the author's prose
some book by russell, i guess
some science narrator.
'keeping it together'
great book, but the narrator was not right for this part. he might be ok otherwise
yes, because when you hear it, you really have to pay attention. it's very carefully crafted, which is easily lost if you just skim through it
the high degree or structure and organization
was upbeat, didn't seem to understand what he was reading
the power behind the power
a major work
yes, it has to be listened to around five times, full of info
the contrast between the narrator's light touch and the author's crushingly powerful intellect
the part on programmatic causation
beyond the multiverse
for serious thinkers
