One of Fisher’s most important scientific contributions is the paradigm of randomized experiments. I will try to trace the origin of this idea and highlight how it’s rooted in Fisher’s cross-disciplinary interest in mathematics, biology, statistics, and genetics. I will also try to review the debate between Fisher and Neyman on the foundation of statistical inference and Fisher’s reservations about observational studies.
