non- +‎ Bayesian

## Examples

• So given the apparent plausibility of (4*), any grounds that one has for questioning the inductive step in the earlier, non-Bayesian versions of the argument are likely to translate into grounds for questioning, first of all, proposition (5*), and secondly, the closely connected proposition (5).

The Problem of Evil

• This current usage is misleading since in inductive logic the Bayesian/non-Bayesian distinction should really hang on whether the logic gives Bayes 'theorem a prominent role, or whether the logic largely eschews the use of Bayes' theorem in inductive inferences, as does the classical approach to statistical inference.

Inductive Logic

• When rigorous mathematics is applied to sampling, the probabilities are called non-Bayesian probabilities.

Science and Philosophy

• Begin with a “prior distribution” which may be based on anything, including an assessment of the relative likelihoods of parameters or the results of non-Bayesian observations.

• One of the interesting things about the work is its proposal of a non-Bayesian way of dealing with probability of arguments.

• The third view, "likelihoodism," is popular among non-Bayesian statisticians.

Bayes' Theorem

• There seems to be no decisive criterion of choice between the Bayesian and non-Bayesian approaches.

CHANCE

• Because the computer is truly non-Bayesian, it can't yet differentiate between a win over an obviously bad team vs. a win over an obviously good team.
