    Causation A Very Short Introduction (Book): Mumford, Stephen: Causation is the most fundamental connection in the universe. Without it, there would be no science or technology. There would be no moral responsibility either, as none of our thoughts would be connected with our actions and none of our actions with any consequences. Nor would we have asystem of law because blame resides only in. Causation, Prediction, and Search.

    What assumptions and methods allow us to turn observations into causal knowledge, and how can even incomplete causal knowledge be used in planning and prediction to influence and control our environment? In this book Peter Spirtes, Clark Glymour, and Richard Scheines address these questions using the formalism of Bayes networks, with results that have been applied in diverse areas of 5/5(1). His bibliography, by my count, runs to over separate items. All this with remarkable clarity and conciseness. If, as seems all too likely, there are to be further difficult cases on causation, the judiciary will at least be able to test their intuitions against the analysis in this book.'

Causation is a anthology that looks at various views of causation. The work is complex but a very worthwhile read. It contains not just presentations of theories of causations through articles but also articles arguing against them/5(3).

Causation, he said, is an illusion. With this background, Mumford and Anjum begin their book on causation. In the chapters that follow, some of the common ideas associated with causation are Causation book up – that causes precede effects, that they are near in space and time, that they always occur together and the like.4/5.

The book is organized so as to respect the various cross-cutting and interdisciplinary concerns about causation, such as the reducibility of causation, its application to scientific modeling, its connection to influence and laws of nature, and its role in causal explanation.4/5(2).

Causation: A User's Guide cuts a clear path through this confusing but vital landscape. Book Description Scientific explanation, laws of nature, and causation are crucial and frontier issues in the philosophy of science.

This book studies the complex relationship between the three concepts, aiming to achieve a holistic synthesis about explanation–laws–causation. "Spurious Correlations is the most fun you'll ever have with graphs."--Bustle Military intelligence analyst and Harvard Law student Tyler Vigen illustrates the golden rule that "correlation does not equal causation" through hilarious graphs inspired by his viral website/5().

Causation is the "causal relationship between the defendant's conduct and end result". In other words, causation provides a means of connecting conduct with a resulting effect, typically an injury.

In criminal law, it is defined as the actus reus (an action) from which the specific injury or other effect arose and is combined with mens rea (a state of mind) to comprise the elements of guilt. The causation prong subdivides further into factual and proximate causation.

We looked closely, in Chapter 9, at some factual and proximate causation issues in contributory negligence cases. This chapter examines factual causation doctrine in isolation and derives some rules for navigating this most intractable part of tort law.

Thirty years after Lewis's paper, this book brings together some of the most important recent work connecting--or, in some cases, disputing the connection between--counterfactuals and causation, including the complete version of Lewis's Whitehead lectures, "Causation as Influence," a major reworking of his original paper.4/5(1).

Causation is a central topic in many areas of philosophy. In metaphysics, philosophers want to know what causation is, and how it is related to laws of nature, probability, action, and freedom of the will. In epistemology, philosophers investigate how causal claims can be inferred from statistical data, and how causation is related to perception, knowledge and explanation.

The counterfactual analysis of causation became a focus of philosophical debate after the publication of the late David Lewis's groundbreaking paper, "Causation," which argues against the previously accepted "regularity" analysis and in favor of what he called the "promising alternative" of the counterfactual analysis.
