Abstract

Deborah Mayo claims to have refuted Birnbaum’s argument that the Likelihood Principle is a logical consequence of the Sufficiency and Conditionality Principles. However, this claim fails because her interpretation of the Conditionality Principle is different from Birnbaum’s. Birnbaum’s proof cannot be so readily dismissed.
