I use philosophical theories of causation to comment on the feasibility of the social scientific method ‘process tracing’. By investigating a popular contemporary method in the social sciences, I show to what extent our philosophical theories of causation are workable in practice. Includes interdisciplinary work with qualitative methodologists. I previously worked as a research associate in theoretical philosophy (philosophy of science, particularly causation) at the London School of Economics, where I got my PhD in 2015.
