This volume brings together a collection of new essays by leading scholars on the subject of causation in the early modern period, from Descartes to Lady Mary Shepherd. Aimed at researchers, graduate students and advanced undergraduates, the volume advances the understanding of early modern discussions of causation, and situates these discussions in the wider context of early modern philosophy and science. Specifically, the volume contains essays on key early modern thinkers, such as Descartes, Hobbes, Spinoza, Leibniz, Hume, Kant. It also contains essays that examine the important contributions to the causation debate of less widely discussed figures, including Louis la Forge, Thomas Brown and Lady Mary Shepherd.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Keith Allen and Tom Stoneham's anthology is a very welcome addition to the growing literature on this central topic in the modern period. Unlike its closest predecessor ... the work included here goes far beyond the rationalists of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.'
- Walter Ott, Virginia Tech, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
