Cause and effect
The principle of cause and effect or what is widely called thecausation principles happens or occurs when one event is a result ofanother action or event. In other words, two events must happen withone of them being the cause and the other one being the result (Huff114). For instance, when a baby cries after hearing a door bang, theband is the cause event, and the cry is the result or the effect.Notably, this concept of cause and effect is usually experienced inmany aspects including in nature where lack of rain leads to droughtor too much rains results in flooding.
It is important to note that cause and effect events areinterdependent and one cannot occur without the other. For example,there cannot be floods if heavy rains have not been experienced.Aristotle argued that the cause event can also be described as theexplanation for another event (Huff 98). For instance, the bang onthe door can be said to the reason behind a baby’s cry. Researchhas indicated that there is no separate entity for a cause or aneffect. This means that A can be the cause while B is the effect orvice versa. However, only each one of the two can be the cause or theeffect at one time.
While concluding, it is evident that this is a concept that iswidely used in almost every process. Oftentimes, every event orhappening has a cause. This principle is applied in everyday lifeactivities and also in understanding nature. The cause of an event oran occurrence can be viewed as the explanation of effect event. Thisconcept is also called the causation principle.
