Causality: Metaphysics and Methods

The project 'Causality: metaphysics and methods' was launched in October 2002. Its principal aim was to investigate the applicability and prospects for the development of methods of causal inference formulated in recent philosophy of science. It paid special attention to how these methods work in concrete contexts, primarily in the areas of econometrics, medicine and biology. This project was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Board (AHRB). The project was carried out by Nancy Cartwright, Elliott Sober (Madison), Julian Reiss and John Worrall.
