Thank you for sharing this.

I don't think this gets you what you presumably would like it to. Anscombe challenged Hume's idea of causation as "constant conjunction" which lead to probabilistic ideas of causation. She also challenged Hume's doctrine that causation is not observable.

I tend to agree with her in this.
