### Abstract

The 1990s saw a statistical revolution sparked predominantly by the phenomenal advances in computing technology from the early 1980s onwards. These advances enabled the development of powerful new computational tools, which reignited interest in a philosophy of statistics that had lain almost dormant since the turn of the century. In this paper we briefly review the historic and philosophical foundations of the two schools of statistical thought, before examining the implications of the reascendance of the Bayesian paradigm for both current and future statistical practice.
