Entropy in a World of Causes


In this short paper will present ideas taken from some recent crossings between philosophy of causation, philosophy of time and speculative physics[G1]  (especially Albert 2000, Loewer 2007, Frisch 2007, Kutasch 2007) investigating on a way to reconcile counterfactual asymmetry and thermodynamic asymmetric features such as entropy. I will consider those proposals from their theoretical point of view and then present criticism taken from the authors above and some personal thoughts.
