Science - Philosophy / Concezione di Campbell della causalità nei fenomeni psichici
English term or phrase: counterfactuals
Second, there is, on this view, also no reason to think that causal links within the psychological domain need to be intelligible. As long as the right kind of interventionist counterfactuals hold between two mental states, the first one can causally explain the second one, irrespective of whether there are any intelligible connections between them.

Leggo questa definizione:
implicazione controfattuale, in logica proposizione ipotetica in cui l'antecedente è falso e quindi la conseguenza è ipoteticamente vera anche se non è realizzata.

Mi viene da pensare "interventi controfattuali", ovvero basati sul non accadimento, sulla pura ipotesi.

Asker: non credo che si tratti di questo, di implicazioni, non mi pare ci stia molto nel contesto. O forse tu riesci a contestualizzarlo? online si dovrebbe trovare anche il testo che sto traducendo.
