Lex Parsimoniae

Today's post is brought to you by the letter "O".

"Occam's razor, also known as Ockham's razor, and sometimes expressed in Latin as lex parsimoniae (the law of parsimony, economy or succinctness), is a principle that generally recommends selecting from among competing hypotheses the one that makes the fewest new assumptions."

"Occam's razor is attributed to the 14th-century English logician, theologian and Franciscan friar Father William of Ockham."
