Understanding Counterfactuals, Understanding Causation. The present volume is one of three interdisciplinary volumes growing out of an AHRC Project hosted by the Centre between 2004 and 2008, on ‘Causal Understanding: Empirical and Theoretical Foundations for a New Approach’.

by Christoph Hoerl, Teresa McCormack, Sarah Beck. More recently, however, they have also increasingly turned their attention to psychological connections between causal and counterfactual understanding or reasoning. At the same time, there has been a surge in interest in empirical work on causal and counterfactual cognition amongst developmental, cognitive, and social psychologists-much of it inspired by work in philosophy

Counterfactual conditionals often express causal claims (. Thompson & Byrne, 2002), and the relation between counterfactuals and causal assertions has long been of interest to philosophers and psychologists (. Byrne, 2011; Chisholm, 1946; Hoerl, McCormack, & Beck, 2011). The self between philosophy and psychology : the case of self-deception.

Christoph Hoerl, Teresa McCormack and Sarah Beck (ed., Understanding Counterfactuals, Understanding Causation: Issues in Philosophy and Psychology, Oxford University Press, 2012, 272pp. This interdisciplinary volume is a must read for advanced students of causation in both philosophy and psychology as well as most obviously for academics in both fields. Lewis, D. (1973): Counterfactuals.

How are causal judgements such as 'The ice on the road caused the traffic accident' connected with counterfactual judgements such as 'If there had not been any ice on the road, the traffic accident would not have happened'? This volume throws new light on this question by uniting, for the first time, psychological and philosophical approaches to causation and counterfactuals. Traditionally, philosophers have primarily been interested in connections between causal and counterfactual claims on the level of meaning or truth-conditions. More recently, however, they have also increasingly turned their attention to psychological connections between causal and counterfactual understanding or reasoning. At the same time, there has been a surge in interest in empirical work on causal and counterfactual cognition amongst developmental, cognitive, and social psychologists--much of it inspired by work in philosophy. In this volume, twelve original contributions from leading philosophers and psychologists explore in detail what bearing empirical findings might have on philosophical concerns about counterfactuals and causation, and how, in turn, work in philosophy might help clarify the issues at stake in empirical work on the cognitive underpinnings of, and relationships between, causal and counterfactual thought.
