The Jowett Society (Friday - Week 5, HT23)

Philosophical Society
The connective 'because' is standardly used to give explanations of wordly facts. Anna says 'The Titanic sank because it hit an iceberg,' and thereby causally explains the occurrence of an event in terms of another. But there is another, non-standard use of 'because' in which it seems to have an epistemic point instead of a wordly one. The talk will put this use under scrutiny.
