It also explains the relation between the concepts of the event, action, moment and causality.

Regarding epistemological issues related to causality, this book focuses on source of knowledge, such as perception, inference and verbal testimony, since this book suggests solutions to certain problem of knowledge, including the perception of a physical object, the relation of inferential cognition to its premises; the nature of atomistic and holistic understanding of the meaning of a sentence, it will throw further light on contemporary epistemology, philosophy of language and logic.
