This talk will give an introduction to a range of mechanistic theories of causality and some of the problems they face. The argument is made that, while there is a decisive case against a purely mechanistic analysis, a viable theory of causality must incorporate mechanisms as an ingredient. One way of providing an analysis of causality is described which reaps the rewards of the mechanistic approach without succumbing to its pitfalls.

This talk is part of the Causal Inference Seminar and Discussion Group series.
