Humean laws and circular explanation. Philosophical Studies 72.2 (2015), 433-443. (with Michael T. Hicks)

We defend Humeanism about natural laws from the objection that it is explanatorily circular. The problem we identify with the objection is that it requires explanation to be transitive in a way that explanation is not.

N.B.: Our defense is discussed in detail by Dan Marshall (2015) and Marc Lange (forthcoming).
