Could someone explain to me this sentence I have just found in the paper :

For choices, so too for beliefs.

Thanks.

I assume this is the context.

"Even statistical decision theorists do not make serious choices by consulting cold, textbook models. Like the rest of us, they resort to a knottier combination of deliberation, gut feel and blind hope. For choices, so too for beliefs, which, when met with evidence, are pushed and pulled by processes that are equally mysterious.” – The Guardian

The basic meaning is this.

What has just been said applies to choices. It also applies to beliefs.

Thank you, Clive. You assumed right, that was the context. I was just having a problem with the syntax. I did not quite see how this part fit in the whole construction of the sentence. It is now clear.

All the best.
