I want to ask a question with the title Is there a canonical example demonstrating the difference between predictive and explanatory models?
I have ideas about the body of this question, with some references, but have not yet written it, although I think the title gets at the meat of it. However, I notice that we have neither an
[example] tag, nor a
[pedagogy] tag which makes me wonder if this kind of question might be appropriate, or if it would be too broad or too subjective a question.
PS I would welcome references which you think might be useful for me to look at on the topic of my intended question posted as comments. :)
