Causes and correlates of intrusive memory: A response to Clark, MacKay, Holmes and Bourne [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
[first paragraph] No reader of Psychological Medicine needs to be reminded that correlation does not imply causation, but there are two attitudes that might be taken to that fact, and between them a spectrum of positions. I suspect that those holding positions towards either end of this spectrum overestimate their view's preponderance, and that this explains some of the mutual misunderstandings in our debates concerning psychological disorder. An example may be found in a recent exchange between me, on one hand, and Clark, MacKay, Holmes and Bourne, on the other (Clark et al. 2016b; Mole, 2016). Before considering that exchange, we should consider the two contrasting attitudes to correlation and causation. Most feasible positions lie somewhere between these extremes, but opinions differ as to whether the most sensible lie nearer the first or second.
