Causal Structure and Mechanisms
This chapter explicates the connection between the qualitative concept of a mechanism and the probabilistic causal concepts described in the previous chapter. The main thesis is that, for a broad range of cases of interest to the present study, it is reasonable to identify mechanisms with what is called causal structure in work on the problem of inferring causal conclusions from statistical data.
