How likelihood and identification went Bayesian.
International Statistical Review, 70, (1), . (doi:10.1111/j.1751-5823.2002.tb00350.x).
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.
