Causal pluralism is the view that causation is not a single kind of relation or connection between things in the world. Assessing such a claim requires making sense of a difficult counting operation. In practice, there tends not to be much disagreement about how to do the counting, because most philosophical work on causation has sought a view with an obvious kind of unity. The literature often works with a standard range of candidate connections that seem to have an important link to the idea of causation.

Руку чуть не вырвало из плечевого сустава, когда двигатель набрал полную мощность, буквально вбросив его на ступеньки. Беккер грохнулся на пол возле двери. Мостовая стремительно убегала назад в нескольких дюймах внизу.
