I'm listening to this lecture on mental causation:
At 22:50, the lecturer says, "Hume told us didn't he that there can't be logical relations between cause and effect" etc.
And on the slide it says, "In the 50s and 60s others thought that reasons couldn't be causes because reasons(beliefs and desires) are logically linked to their behavioral effects".
Why would having a logical connection rule out a cause and effect relation? I mean I can understand a logical relation not being sufficient for a cause and effect relation... but why would a logical relation work against the idea of cause and effect? If A is logically connected to B, that specifically works against A possibly causing B? So A and B not being logically connected means the likelihood of a cause/effect connection is higher? Appreciate any help understanding.
