Occam's Razor

Occam's Razor is the philosophical rule that the simplest explanation is preferred over the more complicated one and that explanations should be first proposed in relation to concepts that are already known. Another way of seeing it is to say that the fewer assumptions that need to be made to support an explanation of something--the better. The principle is attributed to William Occam of the fourteenth century.
