Judea Pearl has been at the cutting edge of developing causal inference approaches for a quarter of a century, and in “The Book of Why” he has produced a popular introduction to his approach. This discussion is intended for readers of “The Book of Why” (or of Pearl’s cognate writings), and present the views of an applied epidemiological researcher on the usefulness and limitations of its framework for empirical investigations.
