Consequently, we open a (another) path on the search for Truth. It is the strength of the weakest—the minors! 6 In Perspective Statistics is also associated with the collecting and use of data in order to support the organisation of a certain state. The justice system is, in fact, one of the fundamental pillars of a modern state and it is basics in the politics of most of the countries. The most recent advance in the theory of outliers has emerged from the statistical inference to interpret data in a legal point of view.

Maybe now it is the moment to make a new up-to-date statement. In that study mentioned before, Beckman and Cook ironically conclude that “Although much has been written, the notion of outlier seems as vague today as it was 200 years ago”. What would we say today? Of course, from then on we have registered an advance, but there is yet much to do. The development of modern statistical theory has been a three—sided tug war between the Bayesian, frequentist and Fisherian viewpoints. In 1975, Lindley [3] foretold that the twenty-first century would be Bayesian—because 2020 was a crucial year.

Thus Statistics, as many other subjects, is always evolving. It is sustained by a theory : : : hence, it is also and above all, progressive! A theory is a set of primary guidelines of a science or of an art with a certain doctrine about them. Statistics is a science because, basically, it develops a rigorous and rational understanding of a wide range of knowledge in a large sundry of purposes. So, it must be an organised set of information rooted on objective verifiable interactions and with a universal value.
