Occam's razor (or Ockham's razor) is a principle from philosophy. It says that if the only difference between two explanations is how complex they are, the simpler one is usually better. Another way of saying it is that the more assumptions you have to make, the more unlikely an explanation is. When something is simple and works, it is good.
