[Introduction] In recent years, there has been a philosophical cottage industry producing arguments that our concept of causation is not univocal: that there are in fact two (or more) concepts of causation, corresponding to distinct species of causal relation. Papers written in this tradition have borne titles like "Two Concepts of Cause" (Sober 1985) and "Two Concepts of Causation" (Hall forthcoming). With due apologies to Charles Dickens, I hereby make my own contribution to this genre.
