A new review of Causality

Filed under: Book (J Pearl),General,Opinion — eb @ 2:46 pm

A new review of Causality (2nd Edition, 2013 printing) has appeared in Acta Sociologica 2014, Vol. 57(4) 369-375.
Reviewed by Felix Elwert, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA.

Elwert highlights specific sections of Causality that can empower social scientists with new insights or new tools for applying modern methods of causal inference in their research. Coming from a practical social science perspective, this review is a welcome addition to the list of 33 other reviews of Causality, which tend to be more philosophical. see

I am particularly gratified by Elwert’s final remarks:
“Pearl’s language empowers social scientists to communicate causal models with each other across sub-disciplines…and enables social scientists to communicate more effectively with statistical methodologists.”
