Judea Pearl’s work on causality is about adding to classical statistics (inference of probability laws over observed data), the inference of probability laws over counterfactuals (hypothetical facts). If for no other reason than this, Judea Pearl’s The Book of Why: The New Science of Cause and Effect (with Dana Mackenzie) is an important book.
