Definability in the Real Universe
Suppose that the causal model includes variables for “Victoria took a vacation in the Canary Islands”, “sunny in the Canary Islands”, and “went to a tanning salon”.
Causes and Explanations: A Structural-Model Approach. Part II: Explanations
Victoria taking a vacation is not an explanation (relative to the context K) in our framework, since there is a context ~u∗ ∈ K where Victoria went to the Canary Islands but it was not sunny, and in ~u∗ the actual cause of her tan is the tanning salon, not the vacation.
Causes and Explanations: A Structural-Model Approach. Part II: Explanations
The only complete explanation according to our definition is “Victoria went to the Canary Islands and it was sunny.” “Victoria went to the Canary Islands” is a partial explanation, in a sense to be defined below.
Causes and Explanations: A Structural-Model Approach. Part II: Explanations
In Example 4.1, if the agent believes that it is sunny in the Canary Islands with probability .9 (that is, the probability that it was sunny given that Victoria is suntanned and that she went to the Canaries is .9), then Victoria going to the Canaries is a partial explanation of her being tanned with goodness .9.
Causes and Explanations: A Structural-Model Approach. Part II: Explanations
The relevant set K′ consists of those contexts where it is sunny in the Canaries.
Causes and Explanations: A Structural-Model Approach. Part II: Explanations
In Example 4.1, the context ~u∗ is one such context, since in ~u∗, Victoria went to the Canary Islands, but this was not an explanation of her getting tanned, since it was not sunny.
Causes and Explanations: A Structural-Model Approach. Part II: Explanations
