Error and Inference [arXived]

Following my never-ending series of posts on the book Error and Inference, (edited) by Deborah Mayo and Ari Spanos (and kindly sent to me by Deborah), I decided to edit those posts into a (slightly) more coherent document, now posted on arXiv.

    • I think if Bayesian analysis takes it, say, that it would be constructive to allow Aris and I to respond briefly to the main issues. Do you agree? In the mean time, I’ll get to it bit by bit in my blog (though much of the concerns have already been addressed more generally).

      • Alas, Bayesian Analysis rejected the extended review on the basis that it does not publish book reviews… Next attempt is presumably Theory & Decision.

  5. […] connection with my series of posts on the book Error and Inference, and my recent collation of those into an arXiv document, Deborah Mayo has started a series of informal seminars at the LSE […]
