APA- Seminar in Philosophy of Statistics: July 28-August 11, 2019.

Today’s statistical crisis of replication is causing much introspection among practitioners, and serious changes in evidence policies are being debated. The issues cry out for philosophical illumination. We will offer a 2-week immersive seminar on Philosophy of Statistics (PhilStat) for faculty and post-docs in philosophy who wish to acquire or strengthen their background in PhilStat as it relates to philosophical problems of evidence and inference, to today’s statistical crisis of replication, and associated evidence-policy debates. We also invite social scientists and methodology researchers interested in strengthening their philosophical scholarship in this arena. Up to two advanced Ph.D students working on a dissertation directly in this area may be considered. Approximately 12–15 applicants will be selected.

Goals for participants:
  1. Gain the necessary background in statistical methodology to integrate PhilStat into their research and/or teaching.
  2. Study current debates between frequentist, Bayesian, likelihoodist and other methods, as they interrelate to (i) philosophical problems of evidence and inference, and to (ii) today’s data and statistical policy debates.
All accepted participants will receive housing and a stipend.
