In the field of probability, there was an awareness of the need for a theoretical breakthrough to make it fully applicable to scientific endeavour. Mathematical probability had been limited to finding probability distributions of random samples of populations with known properties. The new scientific method would increasingly produce quantitative observational data from which inferences would be made: modern thinking increasingly called for inductive, rather than deductive, reasoning. The inversion of mathematical probability into statistical inference—to make rigorous statements about populations based on sample data observations, rather than to make statements about sample probabilities based on known or assumed population characteristics—was a problem whose solution had so far evaded all the impressive group of thinkers who had tackled probability.
