...theory considers the mutually exclusive, exhaustive cases. The probability of an event is defined as **the ratio of the number of favorable cases to the total number of** possible cases. A weakness of the classical theory lies in its complete dependence upon a priori analysis.... | |

...refutationists hold that they are damning. The former think of the degree of confirmation of a hypothesis as **the ratio of the number of favorable cases to the total number of cases.** (And because of the analogy between this ratio and Laplace's definition of probability, they tend to... | |
