RMM-6: Special Volume on Stat Sci Meets Phil Sci

The article “The Renegade Subjectivist: José Bernardo’s Reference Bayesianism” by Jan Sprenger has now been published in our special volume of the on-line journal, Rationality, Markets, and Morals (Special Topic: Statistical Science and Philosophy of Science: Where Do/Should They Meet?”)

Abstract: This article motivates and discusses José Bernardo’s attempt to reconcile the  subjective Bayesian framework with a need for objective scientific inference, leading to a special kind of objective Bayesianism, namely reference Bayesianism. We elucidate principal ideas and foundational implications of Bernardo’s approach, with particular attention to the classical problem of testing a precise null hypothesis against an unspecified alternative.
