Thus, "necessity is something that exists in the mind, not in objects." First of all, to deny causation leads us to the denial of scientific and rational thought in general. The whole basis and "raison d’�tre" of science is the attempt to provide a rational explanation for the observed phenomena of nature , cited: It's interesting to reflect that popular authors such as Marco Polo (1254-1342), Dante (1265-1321), Petrarch (1304-1374), Boccacio (1313-1375) and Geoffrey Chaucer (1340-1400) all died well before their works could benefit from this seismic shift ref.: Lipsius, Opera omnia, 4 vols, Wesel, 1675, vol.
