However, “action theory” — the branch of philosophy that has traditionally articulated the boundaries between action and non-action, and between voluntary and involuntary behavior — has been unable to account for the difference.
Alicia Juarrero argues that a mistaken, year-old model of cause and explanation — one that takes all causes to be of the push-pull, efficient cause sort, and all explanation to be prooflike — underlies contemporary theories of action. Juarrero then proposes a new framework for conceptualizing causes based on complex adaptive systems.
