    A bit reminiscent of the (one-sided, as far as I can tell) Newton-Leibnitz pissing contest about calculus…

    So, let me get this straight, Weisburg is postulating that, because of a footnote Price put in a paper in 1767, and because of a dinner that took place in Paris in 1772, which neither Laplace or Condorce attended, this led (helped?!) Laplace to deduce the law of inverse probability… Seems a bit of a silly proposition to me, but what do I know.
