This article gives an overview of the emergence and development of causation as a scientific category, as well as a specific criminal law institute, in the sources of philosophy and law. Causation content is analysed in chronological order by reviewing the sources of causality at different periods in civilisation. A more detailed analysis is carried out on major works and theories that have contributed to understanding the evolution of causation. The article compares different branches of science and law to determine how causation theories evolved and which ones provide the basis for the creation of today’s mechanism for proving causation. It attempts to answer the question, “Is the initial understanding of causation developed in philosophy significant for the criminal law of today?” The article explains the basis for the formation of causation theories used in current criminal law in Lithuania. It provides an introduction to discourse on the problematic of causality, which will reveal the genesis and evolution of causation.
