Editorial Reviews


This volume is a highly welcome addition to the current discussion of causality at the intersection of philosophy and the sciences ... the volume provides a well-chosen compilation of contributions proving the ongoing progress in exploring the nature of causality and in developing applicable causal concepts in cooperation of philosophy and science. We can warmly recommend Causality in the Sciences to any philosophically interested scientist or philosopher interested in causality (or mechanisms) and its (their) applications in the sciences.

She is interested in all aspects of the metaphysics and methodology of causality. She is currently working on a Leverhulme-Trust funded project on mechanisms and causality across the sciences that uses understanding of the discovery and use of causal mechanisms in different sciences to inform philosophical work on causality.

She is interested in causality and probability in the social, biomedical and policy sciences, as well as in the philosophical, legal, and social, implications of technology. Federica is part of the editorial board of the journal Philosophy and Technology and features editor of the monthly gazette The Reasoner.
