Concepts of causation in historiography

Anton Froeyman (2009) HISTORICAL METHODS. 42(3). p.116-128
abstract
Historians can use the concept of causation in a variety of ways. each of which is associated with different historiographical claims and different kinds of argumentation. The author shows that, contrary to the Usual view, historical narratives are causal (in a specific way), and microhistory can be seen as a response to a very specific causal problem of Braudelian macrohistory.
