For the last 100 years statisticians have been developing techniques to tease causal conclusions out of observational correlational data. For the most part philosophers have simply ignored these developments. Even when they have taken notice, they have done nothing to relate the success of these techniques to the metaphysical nature of causation. Curiously, this silence has been encouraged by the attitude of statisticians like Judea Pearl. My talk will reflect on this puzzling situation.
