Risky business: statistical proof of individual causation

Susan Haack, University of Miami, organizes her lecture in the following points: 1. A pragmatic preamble: how legal concepts evolve. 2. A brief history: evidence of RR>2 becomes a test for specific causation. 3. Epistemological interlude: why RR>2 is neither necessary nor sufficient. 4. Practical postscript: why better epistemology would be better policy
