    • Criteria for judgemental rationality Hello I understand that critical realism says we can find criteria for choosing a theory among their rivals (this is the biggest reason for my interest in critical realism). I also understand that judgemental rationality says knowledge comes from judgment. The question is, what are the criteria for this judgemental rationality? In the criticalrealismnetwork.org site, Timothy Rutzou says ''Andrew Sayer’s appeal to ‘practical adequacy’ is the best solution''. Do all people who study critical realism agree with this? Also, is there a concrete example in the history of science, where we can show a theory is better than its rival because it is more practically adequate?
