Recently, I read a translated book on negotiation. While discussing the importance of economy of thought and language, or the principle of parsimony, the writers referred to "Ockham's Razor" as the foundation of this approach and explained this principle, saying, maybe something like, "As Ockham's Razor says…"
But the Persian translator has thought that this phrase refers to somebody known as Ockham's Raze. So, he misunderstood the main point of the writers.
In a Persian post, I have reported this misunderstanding and have given some historical remarks on William of Ockham, to whom this principle is attributed.
