One thought on “When All Models Are Wrong

  1. Mel Jay

    Thank you for a very nice description of the problem.
    But although the suggested improvements to modeling practices
    should be helpful, I have doubts how much they can overcome
    human nature.

    Because I think it is true, as Hugo Mercier discusses in this
    interview on

    Edge.org
    ,
    in reference to his paper written with Dan Sperber

    Why Do Humans Reason? Arguments for an Argumentative Theory
    ,

    Reasoning was not designed to pursue the truth.
    Reasoning was designed by evolution to help us win arguments.
