Non-Markovian causality in the social sciences with some theorems on transitivity

Synthese 68 (1):129 - 140 (1986)
The author argues for the importance of non-Markovian causality in the social sciences because Markovian conditions often cannot be satisfied. Two theorems giving conditions for non-Markovian causes to be transitive are proved. Applications of non-Markovian causality in psychology and economics are outlined.
