Causation, Complexity and Evidence in Health Sciences (CauseHealth)

  • NMBU campus
    Gisle Bjørneby @ NMBU

Causation is central to our understanding of human health and illness. Medical explanation, prediction and intervention are all premised on the reality of causation and philosophy is best placed to account for its nature. CauseHealth brings together philosophers, medical researchers and practitioners to address a major challenge: how to understand causation in health sciences.



CauseHealth is a 4 year research project, funded by the FRIPRO scheme for independent projects of Research Council of Norway. It is hosted by the School of Economics and Business at Norwegian University of Life Sciences. The project started up in the spring 2015.
