Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is not a complete review. I scanned rather than read most of the articles. The book is a collection of papers about philosophical causation. I say "philosophical causation" because the discussion of causation by philosophers has drifted fairly far from what most laymen think the issues are. For example, as the volume's Introduction says, Cartright's paper "examines the application of counterfactuals in economics. ... Her primary claim is that contemporary analysis of economic counterfactuals is misdirected toward what she calls 'impostor counterfactuals,' with the result that the analysis is not fruitful." The papers are from a conference held in 2003.
