**Actual Causality**

by Joseph Y. Halpern

**Publisher**: The MIT Press 2016**ISBN-13**: 9780262035026**Number of pages**: 240

**Description**:

In this book, Joseph Halpern explores actual causality, and such related notions as degree of responsibility, degree of blame, and causal explanation. The goal is to arrive at a definition of causality that matches our natural language usage and is helpful, for example, to a jury deciding a legal case, a programmer looking for the line of code that cause some software to fail, or an economist trying to determine whether austerity caused a subsequent depression.
