A Mathematical Bias

Abstract

Any Mathematical framework inside which we formalize explanations limits the scope of behaviors we may consider and the type of explanations we might provide. The problem is even more acute when a model provides accurate predictions. This naturally leads us to restrict our investigation within the chosen framework, making us blind to alternatives.
