    According to David Hume (1743), for an event series to be a causal series is simply for that series to instantiate a regularity. According to Carl Hempel (1945), to explain an event is simply to identify a regularity of which that event is the final component. Both analyses are wrong but philosophers have failed in their attempts to identify the flaws in those arguments and, more importantly, in their attempts to produce viable alternative analyses. Here, the flaws in those arguments are identified and viable analyses of causation and explanation are put forth.
