Hi Howard,
I'm not sure that I disagree with any of your post except that I wonder if there are not rather more subtleties and types of 'causation;' and 'causal explanation', then you explicitly allow for. For example, on some definitions (e.g. those of some critcial realist economists) causal explanation is just an account of the causal history of something!
Many thanks
