This paper identifies some simple counterexamples to Lewis's account of indeterministic causation in terms of chance and counterfactuals. It proposes a different account to handle these problems, by way of introducing a notion of 'overall world chance'.

Item Type: Book Section
Additional Information: The approach here is different from the one taken in "Indeterministic causation and varieties of chance-raising": it involves a novel notion of 'overall world chance', and it aims to accommodate backwards causation.
