Law and Learning

Part of the Lecture Notes in Statistics book series (LNS, volume 189)


Like mathematics, statistics, too, is a handmaiden of science. See the preface in Senn (2003) in this regard. But, perhaps unlike mathematics, statistics derives much of its character and meaning from related disciplines. In addition to logic, mathematics, and scientific method, there are other bodies of thought to which statistics can look for guidance and with which it need come to terms. Further important guides are law, learning theory, and economics. Here we mention the first two; later, in discussing the price interpretation of probability, we touch on economics.
