What's Occam's Razor?
I know it's a philosophical principle, i.e., simple explanation is often correct, but what's the origin of this saying? What is the principle often used to describe? Thanks.

我懂 Ocaam's Razor 的意思，但我不懂的是... 明明可以叫 Occam's principle，為什麼要提他的 razor 呢...?!

If there are more than one way of figuring out a thing, use the simple one.Occam's Razor only comes into practice when a sufficient theory has something added to it which does not improve its predictive power. Occam's Razor neatly cuts these additional theoretical elements away.比喻他的中心想法: 把多餘的 不需要的 切除http://www.answers.com/Occam's%20RazorSource(s): 參考看看吧
