14.11 Causality

In the present state, causality, the relation between causes and their effects, is seen as a special relation between presentials (contrary to the DOLCE account as given in (34)). This basic relation shall support the traditional intuitions of regularity, counterfactual dependency and manipulability. In a second step, the basic causal relation is then extended to cover processes as causal relata as well.
