MULTIPLE CAUSATION

is the philosophical position which explains that a single cause is unlikely to be the result of a single cause, instead multiple causes are likely to be involved.

MULTIPLE CAUSATION: "The concept of multiple causation argues that some events are unlikely to be caused by a single previous act, and are more likely to be the result of multiple causes."
