Biographical Info I received a bachelor's degree in both Business Administration and Philosophy and a master's degree in Philosophy. Currently I am a PhD student at Ruhr University Bochum, Germany. My main concern is causal explanation in economics, especially I apply the interventionist theory of causation (Woodward-style) to economics. Furthermore, I am interested in Philosophy of Mind, largely issues concerning consciousness as well as determinism and free will. — La causalité est morte, vive la causalité!
