Bayesianism and Inference to the Best Explanation both offer models of inductive inference. Prima facie, these two models appear to conflict; nonetheless, recently many philosophers have attempted to reconcile the two. Such Bayesian Explanationists either try to show that these models, while indeed distinct, do not conflict with one another, or they try to show that one of the models reduces logically to the other. In this paper, I survey and critique some of the most prominent strategies that philosophers have adopted to this conciliatory end.
