Causality and Explanation

Wesley C. Salmon

Oxford University Press

Confronts conflicting intuitions about the character of probabilistic causality. These intuitions were exposed with the publication of the preceding essay, and the critics’ responses to it. Using several important additional examples, this essay addresses the responses of I.J. Good to the criticisms raised in the preceding chapter. It exhibits complexities that arise when we try to accommodate sophisticated intuitions about probabilistic causality in an explicitly articulated theory.
