William of Ockham would, in the 14th century, scarcely have imagined how much Philosophy of science could change. Then when Bacon gave us Inductivism in the 17th century, an immediate synergy can be seen. Inductivism with its bent towards verification, would be well served by the razor supplying the easiest to verify theory.
After Logical positivism, and especially the influence of Popper, we have today the general practice in Science to select theories on the basis of being (most easily) falsifiable. Yet Occam's razor is still held up as the gold standard to use for selecting theories.
Question: Have anyone commentated on this apparently seamless, but diametrically changed application?
