Statistics Is Not Math: Update To Allow New Comments

Statistics Is Not Math: Update To Allow New Comments | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it
Update Hello newcomers. Posts usually close for comments after two weeks. But since this one is getting so many views, I moved it up to re-open comments. "Here is a column of a couple of dozen numb...
Sharrock's insight:

This blog explores the differences between statistics as a discipline and mathematics. I started wondering why the two were referred to as separate. It turns out, they are different.

 

from the blog: "Statistics rightly belongs to epistemology, the philosophy of how we know what we know. Probability and statistics can even be called quantitative epistemology. Our axioms concern themselves with what probability means; that is, of the interpretation of uncertainty. But we abandon those axioms too quickly, choosing instead to follow the path of equations, nearly always skimping on what those equations actually mean."

Alessandro Rea's curator insight, October 25, 2013 6:07 AM

“I can’t write.”

It’s the resignation declaration of the self-defeated. It’s also a fat slice of baloney.

You won’t write? You don’t want to write? I’m willing to buy these statements. But “can’t?” Sorry friend, you can.

You’ve been writing your whole life. You write now. You write emails, greeting cards, shopping lists, meeting notes, etc. In your school years, you wrote every day. When you graduated you wrote a resume.

But now, a blank screen transforms you into an anxious, insecure mess.
