Studies causation both as a concept and as it is 'in the objects.' Offersnew accounts of the logic of singular causal statements, the form of causalregularities, the detection of causal relationships, the asymmetry of cause andeffect, and necessary connection, and it relates causation to functional andstatistical laws and to teleology.
