Paper in progress

Arguing against the currently popular idea that we ought to believe we're living in a computer simulaton. With David Braddon-Mitchell. We wrote this in 2006, and are now revising it.

Book

An as yet unpublished manuscript on the foundations of statistical inference: Statistics Manuscript (follow the link for a draft)


The rest of this is is out of date, but I'm leaving it here because you might still find the links interesting.

Book ideas

  • a book on the likelihood principle — currently working out whether this is the same book as the one above or a different book
  • a popular book on the foundations of statistical inference (yes, really!)
