Description/Abstract

This paper considers how the concepts of likelihood and identification became part of Bayesian theory. This makes a nice study in the development of concepts in statistical theory. Likelihood slipped in easily but there was a protracted debate about how identification should be treated. Initially there was no agreement on whether identification involved the prior, the likelihood or the posterior.
