Explores actual causality, and such related notions as degree of responsibility, degree of blame, and causal explanation. The goal is to arrive at a definition of causality that matches our natural language usage and is helpful, for example, to a jury deciding a legal case, a programmer looking for the line of code that cause some software to fail, or an economist trying to determine whether austerity caused a subsequent depression.

Almost all technical systems currently either interface with or are themselves largely software systems. Software systems must not harm their environment, but are also often vulnerable to security attacks with potentially serious economic, political, and physical consequences, so a better understanding of security and safety and improving the quality of complex software systems are crucial challenges for the functioning of society. This book presents lectures from the 2018 Marktoberdorf summer school Engineering Secure and Dependable Software Systems, an Advanced Study Institute of the NATO Science for Peace and Security Programme. The lectures give an overview of the state of the art in the construction and analysis of safe and secure systems. Starting from the logical and semantic foundations that enable reasoning about classical software systems, they extend to the development and verification of cyber-physical systems, which combine computational and physical components and have become pervasive in aerospace, automotive, industry automation, and consumer appliances. Safety and security have traditionally been considered separate topics, but several lectures in this summer school emphasize their commonalities and present analysis and construction techniques that apply to both. The book will be of interest to all those working in the field of software systems, and cyber-physical systems in particular.

Causal powers are returning to the forefront of realist philosophy of science to fill explanatory gaps seen to be left by reductivist and eliminativist accounts of previous generations. This volume revisits the fortunes of causal powers as scientific explanatory principles across history to foster deeper discussions about their metaphysical natures

Causal inference is perhaps the most important form of reasoning in the sciences. A panoply of disciplines, ranging from epidemiology to biology, from econometrics to physics, make use of probability and statistics in order to infer causal relationships. However, the very foundations of causal inference are up in the air; it is by no means clear which methods of causal inference should be used, nor why they work when they do. This book brings philosophers and scientists together to tackle these important questions. The papers in this volume shed light on the relationship between causality and probability and the application of these concepts within the sciences. With its interdisciplinary perspective and its careful analysis, "Causality and Probability in the Sciences" heralds the transition of causal inference from an art to a science.
