This monograph isn't really statistical. It appears as a substitute at pre-statistical assumptions approximately based variables and causal order. Professor Davis spells out the logical rules that underlie our principles of causality and explains the best way to realize causal course, without reference to the statistical procedure used.

Philosophy is, foundationally and constitutively, the substitution of dialectical for mythic modes of thought and (equivalently) the substitution of discursive for narrative means of expression. Now of course the philosophical critique of myth is undertakenany philosopher will tell you thisin the interest of truth. But what (to coin a phrase) is truth? The philosopher replaces myth with dialectic and narrative with discourse in order to get at the truth about the world and (same thing) in order to express that truth in the form demanded by truth itself.

The initial attempts to distinguish philosophy from literature are concomitant with the birth of philosophy as an autonomous discourse of knowledge. Plato's and Aristotle's efforts to establish philosophy as the voice of truth and philosophical argumentation as its most adequate and appropriate expression rely upon the efforts to distinguish form and content. According to Louis Mackey, Aristotle's critique of myth affirms that truth in poetry and narrative is expressed in an improper form. Improper, because the narrative adornments of myth preserve the tradition in the form of relics whose anthropomorphic or animal character only highlights the alienating aspects of the narrative.
