Book Selection

Error and the Growth of Experimental Knowledge, by Deborah Mayo

Why the honoree chose the book

This book grapples with the issues underlying how scientific knowledge develops. Mayo's formalization of the concept of severity provides a great lens through which to critically evaluate many of the statistical tools scientists use to learn from their data. This book helped me develop a relatively coherent perspective on what I want from my science — and the sorts of approaches that might help me get there.
