Causal models, token causation, and processes

Philosophy of Science 71 (5):820-832 (2004)
Abstract
Judea Pearl (2000) has recently advanced a theory of token causation using his structural equations approach. This paper examines some counterexamples to Pearl's theory, and argues that the theory can be modified in a natural way to overcome them.
