xx sufficient explanations "reasons' or "causes"?
« Thread started on: Feb 21st, 2015, 01:25am »

This is from Wikipedia's article on the PSR.

Quote:
A sufficient explanation may be understood either in terms of reasons or causes, for like many philosophers of the period, Leibniz did not carefully distinguish between the two. The resulting principle is very different, however, depending on which interpretation is given.

How does the resulting principle differ depending on whether you interpret sufficient explanations as "reasons' or "causes"?
