Ockham's Razor

Ramón Mateos

from September 12, 2019 to November 16, 2019

The exhibition is a visual reflection on Ockham's razor. Ockham's razor is a principle of economy or principle of parsimony (lex parsimoniae). This methodological and philosophical principle is attributed to the Franciscan friar Guillermo de Ockham (1280-1349), according to which: under equal of conditions, the simplest explanation is usually the most plausible one. This implies that, when two theories under equal conditions have the same consequences, the simplest theory is more presumable to be correct than the complex one. Ockham's razor is not considered an irrefutable principle, and certainly not a scientific result. "The simplest and most sufficient explanation is the most probable, but not necessarily the true one."
