Here you can find my comprehensive notes, entitled **Foundations of Discrete Causal Theory.** The file names below will become active links as the corresponding files are made available. This will occur over a period of months, and some periodic revisions should be expected. All of the files have watermarks and/or other forms of unique identifying information, but I obviously don’t mind if you make legitimate academic use of them, since I am making them available for download.
