There must be other factors in the external world which contribute to the coming about of the endstate. That this is so does not entail any peculiarity in our use of the term "cause" here. In practically all uses of the term "cause", be it in ordinary language or science, it signifies only part of a sufficient condition. 31 There is an analogous consideration to be made in the case of conventional generation. The basic action itself is rarely sufficient to be conventionally counted as some other action, but requires certain extern al circumstances in order to be so.
It could mean that the work of 0 is a causally sufficient condition in C for the realization of G. Now, the locution normally used in Boorse's texts is that an organ contributes to the realization of a goal (presumably one of the ultimate goals of survival or reproduction). This fact need not raise any theoretical problem. If an organ contributes to the realization of an ultimate goal G, then it must, in the circumstances, be causally sufficient for some subgoal of G. That 0 fulfills its function could then mean that it provides sufficient conditions for a subgoal of G.
According to these designs every bodily part or organ has its functions. If all parts or organs fulfill their functions in a normal way, then the organism is healthy; otherwise it is diseased.

He claims that there are a number of species-uniform mental goals, probably however going beyond the basic goals of survival and AN ANALYTIC THEORY OF HEALTH 23 reproduction, which could be determined by some psycho-statistical analysis.
