Abstract

I investigate the extent to which perspectival realism (PR) agrees with frequentist statistical methodology and philosophy, with an emphasis on J. Neyman’s views. Based on the example of the stopping rule problem, I argue that PR can naturally be associated with frequentist statistics. Then I analyse Neyman’s conception of statistical inference to conclude that PR and Neyman’s conception are incongruent, although I indicate some common ground for both. Additionally, I show some inconsistencies in Neyman’s philosophy. I conclude that Neyman’s frequentism weakens the philosophical validity and universality of PR as analysed from the point of view of statistical methodology.
