The basic idea behind mechanism-based explanation is simple at its core, it implies that proper explanations should detail the ‘cogs and wheels’ of the causal process through which the outcome to be explained was brought about. This idea has become increasingly popular in both the social sciences and philosophy of science over the last two decades. At the core of the mechanistic approach is a criticism of widely held views about social scientific explanation, causation, and the nature of social scientific theories. However, it also has interesting methodological implications for the social sciences.
