Cognitive Constructivism and the Epistemic Significance of Sharp Statistical Hypotheses in Natural Sciences [article]

J.M. Stern
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We believe that this alternative perspective, complementary to the one ofered by decision theory, can provide powerful insights and make pertinent contributions in the context of scientific research.  ...  This book presents our case in defense of a constructivist epistemological framework and the use of compatible statistical theory and inference tools.  ...  The idea that statistics is all about making forecasts based on probabilistic models of 'reality' provides a unified approach to the subject.  ...
