By attempting to derive the concept of causality from experience Brentano gives an answer to Hume’s problem. Brentano bases his attempt on inner perception and pursues thereby a strategy of putting the derivation of the concept on a basis of evidence. According to Brentano we apply the concept of causality – initially grasped by inner perception - to the external world. By the means of further studies dealing with the validity of the concept Brentano analyzes how far the application to the external world is justified. He thereby makes use of probability and apriori arguments. The accusation of falling into psychologism while deriving causality from inner perception does not really hit Brentano. On the other hand he seems not to have been successful while proposing apriori arguments in favor of an universal validity of the concept. Brentano’s probability arguments, however, seem to be accurate. They are based on observed continuity and regularity of things. Brentano cared much about apriori arguments in favor of an universal validity of causality as a foundation of science, but also as a firm basis for a reasonable conviction of the existence of God.
