Abstract: 

In this article, we highlight a series of tensions inhrent to understanding randomness. In doing so, we locate discussions of randomness at the intersections of a broad range of literatures concerned with the ontology of stochastic events and epistemology of probabilistics ideas held by people. Locating the discussion thus has the advantage of emphasizing the growth of probabilisitic reasoning and deep connections among its aspects.
