argumentum a posteriori

The argument 'Cum hoc ergo propter hoc' is an example of an argumentum a posteriori. This argument is to link two events when in fact there is no causal relation. E.g. a beloved person dies when you think about him. You often think about a beloved person, but this time you remember, because of the coincidence in time and emotional importance.
