Causality: causality is the relation between two (separate) entities, whereby a state change of the one entity causes the state of the other entity to change. Nowadays it is assumed that an energy transfer is crucial for talking about a causal link.
D. Hume was the first to consistently deny the observability of cause and effect. (David Hume Eine Untersuchung über den menschlichen Verstand, Hamburg, 1993, p. 95).

Causality/Aggression/Loeber: Loeber and Stouthamer-Loeber (1998)(1) assert that a single causal model to explain the development of antisocial behavior is not adequate, and will hamper efforts to uncover developmental precursors that are specific to different types of offending.
LoeberVsPatterson/LoeberVsMoffit: these researchers propose a distinct developmental model for aggression, in contrast to Moffitt’s and Patterson’s models, which do not distinguish pathways to aggression versus other types of antisocial behavior. >Aggression/Moffitt, >Aggression/Patterson.
