It is very nice that the paper appeared in the 2009 volume of Statistical Science, as it made it as a 70th anniversary celebration for this important book. (In a similar spirit, I will start a reading class in March at CREST on Keynes’ A Treatise On Probability. With the hope that this can lead to another reassessment.)
