What is the distinction between Transeunt and immanent causation according to Chisholm and how does he apply it to the deterministic dilemma?

Transeunt Causation: refers to an event causing another event. Immanent Causation: refers to an agent causing an event. Determinism, then, refers to just transeunt causation. So if anyone is ever responsible for his actions, then determinism must be false; some events must be the result of immanent causation.

What does Chisholm think that the agent really is if it isn’t the brain of the agent?

– It is true that the agent does not do anything with his brain, or to his brain, in the sense in which he doesn’t something with his hand and does something to the staff. But from this it does not follow that the agent was not the immanent cause of something that happened with his brain.

Does Chisholm think that determinism is consistent with human responsibility?

According to Chisholm, the problem of human freedom arises because humans are responsible agents, but this fact conflicts with both determinism and indeterminism. For Chisholm, there is no significant difference between a belief or desire causing an action and another person causing someone’s action.
