Título:
What was he trying to do? Our (plausible) story behind Thomas Bayes's infamous theorem

Palestrante:
Márcio A. Diniz (UFSCar)

Resumo:
On December 22, 1763, John Canton, a physicist and school master, read a paper about probability before the Royal Society of London. The author was a clergyman that had died more than two years before, and the paper was found among his notes by a common friend, a Welsh minister named Richard Price. But how did this priest came up with those ideas of ``inverse probability''? Why he tried his hand on the problem? Those questions were our main motivations. Our (tentative) answers teach us important lessons even for modern scientists.
