During the Spring semester of 1981, the Mathematics Research Center held a weekly statistical discussion series as a precursor to its special year on Scientific Inference, Data Analysis, and Robustness. The many discussants included G. E. P. Box, D. V. Lindley, B. W. Silverman, A. Herzberg, C. F. Wu, B. Joiner and D. Rubin. Many aspects of statistics were discussed, including the Box philosophy of deductive and inductive reasoning, and Lindleys coherent Bayesian viewpoint. The present paper attempts to constructively review the discussion series, and to add a number of retrospective comments and suggestions. Author
