Statistical Crises and Their Casualties–what are they?

What do I mean by “The Statistics Wars and Their Casualties”? It is the title of the workshop I have been organizing with Roman Frigg at the London School of Economics (CPNSS) [1], which was to have happened in June.

New Forum on The Statistics Wars & Their Casualties: August 20, Preregistration (D. Lakens)

I will now hold a monthly remote forum on Phil Stat: The Statistics Wars and Their Casualties–the title of the workshop I had scheduled to hold at the London School of Economics (Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science: CPNSS) on 19-20 June 2020. (See the announcement at the bottom of this blog). I held the graduate seminar in Philosophy (PH500) that was to precede the workshop remotely (from May 21-June 25), and this new forum will be both an extension of that and a linkage to the planned workshop. The issues are too pressing to put off for a future in-person workshop, which I still hope to hold. It will begin with presentations by workshop participants, with lots of discussion. If you want to be part of this monthly forum and engage with us, please go to the information and directions page. The links are now fixed, sorry. (It also includes readings for Aug 20.)  If you are already on our list, you’ll automatically be notified of new meetings. (If you have questions, email me.) Continue reading
