    In the 1990's related research in artificial intelligence, cognitive science, and philosophy resulted in a method for learning causal relationships from passive data when we have data on at least four variables. We illustrate the method using a few simple examples. Then we present recent research showing that we can even learn something about causal relationships when we have data on only two variables.
