Note
"The issue of casual explanation is tackled in this volume from various theoretical perspectives and from methodological points of view. Eminent scientists from cognitive developmental psychology, developmental biology, ethology, embryology, social psychology and computer science were invited to consider the question at a conference held at the University of Stirling in 1985 ... The chapters collected in this volume have either been rewritten since the Stirling conference or are specially written for the book"--P. [ix]
