Causality Assumes Logical Necessity

Causality involves an element of logical necessity.

There's nothing in causal law except regular antecedence and consequence. All we are justified in meaning when we say that a causes b is that neither is ever found without the other.

But we mean more than this by causality, and there's more to it. One of those factors is logical necessity.
