Publisher's Summary

According to David Hume (1743), for an event series to be a causal series is simply for that series to instantiate a regularity. According to Carl Hempel (1945), to explain an event is simply to identify a regularity of which that event is the final component. Both analyses are obviously wrong but philosophers utterly have failed in their attempts to identify the flaws in the arguments put forth by Hume and Hempel and, more importantly, in their attempts to produce viable alternative analyses. In this monograph, the flaws in those arguments are identified and viable analyses of causation and explanation are put forth.
