Review of Metaphysics 4 (1):129-130 (1950)

Abstract
A definition of causality, somewhat general but clear, is given early in the book. Two ideas which in the popular use of the term "cause" are often intermingled and hidden from view, are exhibited and distinguished; they are antecedence and contiguity. Born's definition of causality is sufficiently wide to include both of them.
