• Quote: Hacking on Statisticians

The quiet statisticians have changed our world - not by discovering new facts or technical developments but by changing the ways we reason, experiment and form our opinions about it. is a quote by Canadian science philosopher Ian Hacking (1936-). The quote is found on page 70 of his 1984 "Science" article "Trial by number" (volume 84 p. 67-70)
