It is a misunderstood part of his philosophy. She writes: "Ockham's views about efficient causality are among the most misunderstood parts of his philosophy Widely On the one hand, it is said that he anticipates the empiricism of David Hume by reducing causality to Observed correlations and by denying us any a priori causal. Principles. On the other, he is charged with occasionalism and skepticism about our knowledge of Particular causal connection. What contemporary scholastics deplore, modern empiricists applaud.
