#### The mean side of the force : How regression to the mean can fool us

Regression to the mean is a powerful and common source of bias in interpreting data. Once understood, its potential to mislead is obvious. Yet many scientists are regularly fooled by it. In this blog I shall try explain it.

Debate concerning anachronism has long vexed historical interpretation. Forms of anachronism are often declared the greatest failure, almost a moral sin, that a historian can commit. Yet, many have spoken in favor of anachronism, considering it either as an inevitable, or even as a desirable feature of an historical work.
