Special issue on evidence and causality published

Phyllis Illari & Federica Russo (eds.): Evidence and causality in the sciences. Special issue of Topoi, Volume 33, Issue 2, was published yesterday. It can be found here.

The collection of paper examines how we gain evidence of causality in various sciences.

Several papers examine evidence in medicine, including Barbara Osimani’s discussion of evidence of unintended effects; Jacob Stegenga’s arguments against the very idea of evidence hierarchies; Margaret MacDougall’s guide to when statistical evidence looks too good to be true, and Clarke, Gillies, Illari, Russo and Williamson’s examination of evidence of mechanism.
