David Auerbach writes that he “argued that typicality, being a statistical determination, should not be calculated from raw min-max ranges”. So did I. He quotes me writing about the min-max approach, which we both deprecate, but omits the sentence where I describe its attendant “danger” of “self-confirmation”. It’s not the case that “Dr Egan now agrees” with Auerbach, but rather that Auerbach only imagined the disagreement in the first place.
