Summary/Abstract: The problem of causality is one of those with the status of broadly discussed topics within philosophy. In this paper, I shall represent the popular position of G. Bratoev in our Bulgarian philosophical tradition j concerning the problem of causality. The solution that he has given to this problem — causality as based on interation — could be qualificated as working in philosophy. However, on the basis of the explication that G. Bratoev has done in reference to the concept of causality, I will try to define its place regarding the theoretical-empirical distinction which we know chiefly in the problem sphere comming from positivizm. The place of causality in Scientific Theories will be analized with reference to the possible delineation of empirical and theoretical conceptual levels.
