Objection-Based Causal Networks
This paper introduces the notion of objection-based causal networks which resemble probabilistic causal networks except that they are quantified using objections. An objection is a logical sentence and denotes a condition under which a, causal dependency does not exist. Objection-based causal networks enjoy almost all the properties that make probabilistic causal networks popular, with the added advantage that objections are, arguably more intuitive than probabilities.
