2 lOne reaction to this ambiguity is to abandon the idea of causality as recommended by Bertrand Russell (1912-1913). He saw the concept as a "relic of a bygone age" that does more harm than good. His view was that the search for cause in the traditional sense should give way to functional relations represented in a series of differential equations. This, he claimed, was done in the more" advanced" sciences where causality was no longer discussed. Russell's views have been criticized on two fronts.

The observed variables are enclosed in boxes. The unobserved or latent variables are circled, with the exception of the disturbance terms which are not enclosed. 4 An Example of a Path Diagram 34 MODEL NOTATION, COVARIANCES, AND PATH ANALYSIS abIes connected by the arrows. A curved two-headed arrow indicates an association between two variables. The variables may be associated for any of a number of reasons. The association may be due to both variables depending on some third variable(s), or the variables may have a causal relationship but this remains unspecified.

The same example illustrates another point. Suppose that e is the mean of Xl in its original form. Then Xl + e leads to Xl. The preceding example shows that the covariance of any random variable with another is the same regardless of whether the variables are in deviation or original form. If, however, the scale is changed to ex l , this does change the covariance to e COVal' Xl). A second example addresses an issue in measurement. In psychometrics and other social science presentations it is often argued that two indicators, each positively related to the same concept, should have a positive covariance.
