There has been a recent surge in statistical methods for calibration of inexact models. Alongside these developments, a controversy has emerged about the goals of calibration of inexact models. This talk will trace a swath of research stemming from twenty years ago and potential concerns are marked along the way. The talk will also present some new ideas in this setting that might help close some of these philosophical and practical issues.
