Andrew Gelman-What has happened down here is the winds have changed – Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science

via What has happened down here is the winds have changed – Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science

Very interesting rebuttal to a Susan Fiske editorial criticizing the criticizers in her field of Social Psychology. Lots of history and current practices are taken into account. And you have to read all the well written comments, too. I will say it gives me hope that Academia can police itself well when it comes to research and rigor. Kudos to all the contributors. This is what the Ineternet was intended to do, further dialog and maybe, hopefully foster progress.
