How do I translate "nach" in the following quotation:

ein verkehrtes Urtheil ueber den Kausalzusammenhang der Dinge nach einer mystischen Ansicht der unsichtbaren Welt

  • nach= "according to". Seems to be an old quotation ;) – Beta Aug 5 '16 at 4:23

Nach has three meanings:

  • direction of movement (towards, also in abstract sense)
  • order in time (after)
  • sort of reference (according to as @beta correctly states)

The latest meaning may be somewhat more infrequent, but is meiner Meinung nach still alive and well.
