|Title:||Nonlocal causation in Maxwell theory|
|Publisher:||Centre for Time, Department of Philosophy, University of Sydney.|
|Series/Report no.:||Origins III :: Intervention, Time and Physics|
|Abstract:||Maxwell's equations were the inspiration for special relativity and the principle of relativistic "causality", whereby spacelike-separated events are understood to be causally independent. In this talk, I will show that one of Maxwell's equations actually implies a form of nonlocal causation - causation between what are nominally causally independent events - and show that this sort of causation, while not susceptible to an interventionist or counterfactual analysis, is crucial for many everyday attributions of causal connectedness|
