Causation can refer to a number of things, in the sphere of philosophy it refers to the relationship that exists between a cause and its corresponding effect. In the philosophical sense causation is found described to some extent in Hinduism, where it limits itself to the explanation related to the formation of the Universe. Amongst western philosophers it is seen in the works of Aristotle and David Hume.

Causation is also a concept seen in Law where in criminal and civil cases it acts as a test to realize weather or not the cause of the plaintiff's complaints has been the defendant. Under criminal law it is used in cases related to murder and it forms a part of breach of contract and negligence as a part of civil cases.
