Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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. The work deals with recent theories of causation such as David Lewis's counterfactual model, Salmon's Probability Causation and some of the side issues such as determinism and reductionism. It does not have much about energy views of causation or strong reductionistic views of causation. The work is still a good work and highly accessible. The choice of articles is well thought out and reads like a overarching dialogue rather than a series of articles. This enables the reader to find constant themes being contested and allows for the reader to build up on existing knowledge.

Format: Paperback
A bunch of papers on what causation may be. All of them still worth reading or on the edge of philosophical debate. The quickest head start available on the topic.
Well, I liked least the articles of the editors, but that may be subjective ...
