 Abstract
The development of probability and statistics has been treated in the works of scholars for decades. In this paper, researches on the history of statistics are classified into four categories: philosophy of science, mathematical statistics, social science and sociology of science. Four categories are presented and histories classified into categories are reviewed briefly. Considered are works by Ian Hacking (1975, 1990), Lorrain Daston (988), Anders Hald (1990, 1998), Stephen Stigler (1986), Ted Porter (1986) and Donald MacKenzie (1981). These works are classified by the author`s main interests. From such a diversity in the study of its history, we can see many faces of statistics and unique features of statistics.
