Causality plays an important role in human thinking. Yet we are far from having a complete account of causal reasoning. This paper presents an analysis of causal reasoning about changes in quantities. We abstract from AI theories of qualitative physics three dimensions along which causal reasoning about quantities may be decomposed. We then use this framework to make some psychological predictions.
