This Resource Letter provides a guide to the literature on causality and determinism in physics. It first surveys the literature of a long history of attempts to construct a systematic account of causality, attempts that constitute options for the use of the concept in physics. It then surveys the status of determinism in classical, relativistic, and quantum theories.
