U-PHIL: Stephen Senn (1): C. Robert, A. Jaffe, and Mayo (brief remarks)

I very much appreciate C. Robert and A. Jaffe sharing some reflections on Stephen Senn’s article for this blog, especially as I have only met these two statisticians recently, at different conferences. My only wish is that they had taken a bit more seriously my request to “hold (a portion of) the text at ‘arm’s length,’ as it were. Cycle around it, slowly. Give it a generous interpretation, then cycle around it again self-critically” (January 13, 2011).  (I conceded it would feel foreign, but I strongly recommend it!)
Since these authors have given bloglinks, I’ll just note them here and give a few brief responses:
