There's a lot to like in this new article in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. One is the examination of the relation between counbterfacturals and causality. Another is the lengthy discussion of probabilistic models of causality (probably one of the most misunderstood concepts in public knowledge today). And finally, the use of graphs (and especially directed acyclic graphs, or DAG) in the context of causality is significant. This is not the easiest read, but assists a deeper understanding of both educational research and of new technologies.
