This essay, published in a symposium issue on the “reference class problem” and legal evidence, replies to articles by Dale Nance, Mark Colyvan and Helen Regan, Robert Rhee, and Larry Laudan. We discuss the limits of probabilistic modeling of evidence and the relationship between such modeling and explanatory accounts of legal proof.
Keywords: probability, statistical evidence, inference, relevance, probative value, standards of proof, explanations, reference classes, beyond a reasonable doubt
