This article talks about multicausality, context-conditionality, and endogeneity. It studies the problem of having too few observations or information before discussing in detail these three fundamental challenges for empirical analysis. This article stresses that context matters, which helps clarify the logical requirements of empirical evaluation from comparative history and some of the specific approaches to fulfilling those requirements used by quantitative methods.
