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.
