I have been reading an old blog about “Epistemic, Ontological and Aleatory Risk” on Mathhew Squair’s blog, Critical Uncertainties. I doubt I am alone in having to think hard to get my head around the definitions. So, to help myself, I made a diagram.
There is a lot to think about in Matthew’s article and it stimulated a lot of parallel thoughts. The summaries and interpretations in this diagram are all mine, but it owes a lot to Matthew’s article.
