In this revised and updated edition of The Secret Connexion, Galen Strawson explores one of the most discussed subjects in all philosophy: David Hume's work on causation. Strawson challenges the standard view of Hume, according to which he thinks that there is no such thing as causal influence, and that there is nothing more to causation than things of one kind regularly following things things of another kind. He argues that Hume does believe in causal influence, but insists that we cannot know its nature. The regularity theory of causation is indefensible, and Hume never adopted it in any case.

MEDIA REVIEWS
a comprehensive and persuasively argued position ... exceptionally well written. * International Studies in Philosophy *
thoroughly convincing * London Review of Books *
beautifully argued * Times Literary Supplement *
it stretched me till I twanged * Craig Raine, Observer *
His style is lively, even impassioned. Best of all, he shares the reader's amusement at his own fevered combing of the text. * Australian Journal of Philosophy *
