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. In the philosophy of mind, philosophers want to know whether and how the mind can be said to have causal efficacy, and in ethics, whether there is a moral distinction between acts and omissions and whether the moral value of an act can be judged according to its consequences. And causation is a contested concept in other fields of enquiry, such as biology, physics, and the law. This book provides an in-depth and comprehensive overview of these and other topics, as well as the history of the causation debate from the ancient Greeks to the logical empiricists. The chapters provide surveys of contemporary debates, while often also advancing novel and controversial claims; and each includes a comprehensive bibliography and suggestions for further reading. The book is thus the most comprehensive source of information about causation currently available, and will be invaluable for upper-level undergraduates through to professional philosophers.

It is a great compendium of causation. The only think which is lacking is the representation of the eastern thought on the subject, especially the Buddhist approach to causation described in Patthana (Conditional Relations) being the 7th book of Abhidhamma - a must for a serious causation scholar.

This semester I have been teaching a class on causation for undergrads using this book. I believe the book is very useful although sometimes it is very technical and so not very useful as an introductory book. Be this as it may, it contains excellent essays on every major topic on causation and provides a good summary of the state of the art.

Good review of the contemporary issues regarding causation accost a wide range of disciplines.
