The remedy prescribed by classical statisticians involves the procedure of randomization, whose effectiveness and appropriateness is criticized.

Bacon was not a traditional metaphysician and was alarmed at the lack of progress in science since ancient times, especially the (...)

    Mayo (1987) sought to discredit Urbach's (1985) arguments against randomization as a universal requirement in clinical and agricultural trials. The present reply rebuts Mayo's criticisms.
