Six Short Papers on Causality


These essays concern the different kinds of causation and their respective explanatory functions. Each of the following topics is discussed, in a clear and precise manner:

*The relationship between causation and prediction
*The relationship between causation and explanation
*The relationship between prediction and explanation
*The nature of counterfactual truth
*The relationship between counterfactual conditionals and the corresponding past-tense indicatives
*The relationship between counterfactual conditionals and the corresponding future-tense indicatives
*Program causality and its explanatory virtues
*The different kinds of causes involved in the development of mental illness.
*Singular causation
*The nature of causal laws

These topics are analyzed clearly, incisively and originally, by the world authority on the topic of causation. This book is a fascinating adventure, to be cherished and listened to over and over.
