Realization of property instantiations by microphysical states of affairs is of course different from the realization of property instantiations by instantiations of other properties that was discussed in Chapter 2.
But we also need to say more about what goes into the causal proﬁle of a property and the causal proﬁles of the microphysical states of affairs that realize its instantiation. Central to the causal proﬁle of a property is the effect that the instantiation of that property will have on the subsequent career of the thing in which it is instantiated. E. ⁹ And important among the forward-looking causal features of properties are those that are manifested in immanent causation, the production in the object’s future career of property instances that are appropriate successor states of properties instantiated previously.
