It’s time for science to abandon the term ‘statistically significant’ | Aeon Essays

Source: It’s time for science to abandon the term ‘statistically significant’ | Aeon Essay

Here lies an opportunity to ponder the idea that your and my sense of objects, entities, events and one another is nothing more than a collection of expectations or predictions.

This modest cosmology means that the subject matter of inductive and deductive debates:"What is really going on? What can we really say about it?" has the status of questions  about angels dancing upon pin heads.

Perhaps we are talking about utilitarian commonalities across irreducibly private renderings of what is going on, from points of view we call ourselves and one another

This does not mean that the distinction between deductive and inductive is not important, but   inductive understandings could be closer to the flowing nature of what is going on than hard-edged deductive syllogisms.
