TT is back! Techne has discovered the surest way to fight cancer: a healthy dose of bad-ass scholastics.

If the emergence of cancer is a causal process and we want to know what causes cancer and we want to design something that causes cancer cells to die, I suppose a good way to start is to have a proper understanding of what a cause is in the first place. Again, what follows is an attempt to briefly lay out a few important Scholastic concepts with regard to causality as it will be relevant before ditching "random variation" and natural selection" as "explanations" or "reasons" or "causes" for the emergence of cancer.
