Philosophers Index Abstract
This article provides a critical analysis and comparison of the theories of probabilistic causality1 offered by hans reichenbach, I j good, and patrick suppes. Each of these theories faces certain fundamental difficulties. In the end, I argue that probabilistic causality2 cannot be explicated in terms of statistical relations among discrete events alone; instead, we must take into account the physical processes which provide causal connections among the events involved.
