Can We See Causal Relation?

Autors: 
Nagumanova S. F., Kazan State Medicine University
Abstract: 

Several philosophers and psychologists contend that we can see causal relation in some cases. In this article it is suggested – based on the analysis of Susanna Siegel and Steven Butterfill views – that we can see causal relation only in cases of simple mechanical movements.
