Stigler Rmation in a data set is often proportional to only the suare root of the number of observations not the absolute number The third idea is likelihood the calibration of inferences with the use of probability Intercomparison is the principle that statistical comparisons do not need to be made with respect to an external standard The fifth pillar is regression both a paradox tall parents on average produce shorter children; tall children on average have shorter parents and the basis of inference including Bayesian inference and causal reasoning. Written by the author of The History of Statistics The Measurement of Uncertainty before 1900 it seems to mostly cover new ground or at least cover it differently Most of the stories related are new to me fine it s been a while since I read his previous bookStigler breaks statistics up into seven separate areas and traces the history of each aggregation likelihood experimental design etc There was a really interesting story about the development of Bayesian statistics Philosopher David Hume had argued against miracles basically holding that if something does not happen after a million trials it is an impossibility and the Reverend Bayes developed what b

Stigler What gives statistics its unity as a science Stephen Stigler sets forth the seven foundational ideas of statistics a scientific discipline related to but distinct from mathematics and computer scienceEven the most basic idea aggregation exemplified by averaging is counterintuitive It allows one to gain information by discarding information namely the individuality of the observations Stigler s second pillar information measurement challenges the importance of big data by noting that observations are not all eually important the amount of info. As a PhD student in Statistics I found this book absolutely fascinating Seeing the conceptual linkages between statistical topics and how one piece of research leads to another was really revealing It s also written in a clear although there s a little notation fashion so people can take home the stories of statistical wisdom as opposed to the details of the methodology I now fully appreciate simply how revolutionary Galton s analysis was and the same goes for inter comparison Indeed seeing the relationship between calculation the standard error leading to the bootstrap cross validation was something I would have never thought of It s just fascinating t
