Abstract:
Delegated causality is introduced as a dual to interventional causality. It illuminates the causal role of dynamical systems at the ``edge of chaos", explicates evident cases of downward causation, and relates emergent phenomena to Godel's incompleteness theorem. Apparently rich implications can be noticed in evolutionary biology and Chinese philosophy. The perspective of delegated causality supports cognitive interpretations of self-organization and evolution. It suggest a developmental direction for Artificial Intelligence and civilization.
