On the history of uncertainty measures: The standard deviation

This was supposed to be a series of blog post about the history of the standard deviation, seen as a measure of uncertainty.

Given the current pandemic and how difficult it is to pursue research in this context, especially as a non-academic, I am shelving the project for now.

This is the current draft, with complete references and you can still consult the first draft. The main difference is that the current draft includes complete references and a short introduction to the subject.

You can also access complete refences heres.
