Editorial Reviews

'This anthology will be quite valuable to professional philosophers, graduate students and advanced undergraduates. It could easily be used as a source of material for a seminar on causation. The book contains an extensive bibliography and this alone makes it a valuable resource to anyonedoing research in this or a related field.'Fred Foulks, University of British Columbia, Canadian Philosophical Reviews, Vol. XIV, No. 1, Feb 1994
