    • I tried to develop a theory that make two theories from different fields coherent, causal cognition in psychology and causal process theory in philosophy developed by Dowe (2000). I proposed a prerequisite that if it is satisfied, psychological causation (defined by causal cognition) will contain physical causation (defined by causal process theory). Where this condition (c) is: sufficient information and logically correct causal reasoning. In this artical, I gave specific definitions from previous literature, examples for different conditions and possibly replies to critics.
