There’s been some debate here at TSZ recently about probability and the interpretation of probability.
I took some flak (my personal subjective opinion) for attempting to distinguish between calculating probabilities and estimating probabilities.
Yet in recent reading I came across this bit of text:
How do you determine the probability that a given event will occur? There are two ways: You can calculate it theoretically, or you can estimate it experimentally by performing a large number of trials.
– Probability: For the Enthusiastic Beginning. p. 335
Are there there ways to determine the probability that an event will occur that do not fall under wither of the two stated above, and if so, do any of those alternative ways to determine the probability that an event will occur involve neither calculating nor estimating the probability?
Bonus award if you can explain “epistemic probability” why it is 1) frequentist, or 2) not frequentist. My own reading puts it in the latter.
