Popper on Theory of Weighted Decision Making

in search of a better world, ch 15, pg 207
excepting mathematics, our arguments are never conclusive. We must always assess the weight of arguments and of reasons; we must always decide of judge which of them have greater weight; those for a given view, or those against it. Therefore, the search for truth and the formation of opinion always contain an element of free decision (my bold, Popper's italics)

This weights stuff is refuted in BoI
