I just read a research paper that said implicitly that there was a difference between the two. I thought that Fisherian statistics was another word for frequentist statistics.

  • $\begingroup$ I don't know a ton, but came across this same idea the other day. Didn't Fisher believe in a strong middle-ground between Frequentist vs. Bayesian Statistics? $\endgroup$ – dylanjm Nov 19 '17 at 0:31

    $\begingroup$ Having the paper for context would help. This suggests that while Fisher was frequentist, not all frequentists agreed with Fisher. $\endgroup$ – Sean Easter Nov 19 '17 at 0:53

    $\begingroup$ Maybe it was referencing fiducial inference en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiducial_inference? $\endgroup$ – aleshing Nov 19 '17 at 8:09
  • $\begingroup$ You'll need to explain the context. Fisher got involved in a lot of controversies over his long career & every so often someone uses "Fisherian" to label his side of the argument on a particular issue. $\endgroup$ – Scortchi Nov 19 '17 at 15:09
