Summary
The author tracks thinking about causality in Europe and America since 1830. He focuses on the act of murder, documented by over 100 murder novels, as well as developments in fields from genetics to quantum theory. He argues that knowledge of causality becomes increasingly specific, multiple, complex, probabilistic and uncertain
