The Logic of Causal Order

The Logic of Causal Order

November 1985 | 72 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This monograph is not statistical. It looks instead at pre-statistical assumptions about dependent variables and causal order. Professor Davis spells out the logical principles that underlie our ideas of causality and explains how to discover causal direction, irrespective of the statistical technique used. He stresses throughout that knowledge of the `real world' is important and repeatedly challenges the myth that causal problems can be solved by statistical calculations alone.
