Popper holds that we can have reasons to think or conjecture, for a particular theory, that this is the case. And this is precisely his solution to the first phase of the problem of induction. One that replaces the old challenge posited by the problem of justification by a totally different problem, namely that of explaining or giving critical reasons to support our preference of a theory to one or various competitors, or 'the problem of critically discussing hypothesis in order to find out which of them is - comparatively - the one to be preferred'.
54). , pp. 71-2. Cf. , p. 72. 28. , p. 74 29. 30. It seems to me that all the objections to my theory which I know of approach it with the question of whether my theory has solved the traditional problem of induction — that is, whether I have justified inductive inference. Of course I have not. From this my critics deduce that I have failed to solve Hume's problem of induction. (OK, p. 28) Among the many that raise this criticism it is worth mentioning Maxwell, who thinks that in so far as Popper's attempted disposal of induction is based on the falsifiability requirement, it seems to fail (Maxwell 1974) and Levison, who argues that Popper did not succeed in solving Hume's problem (Levison 1974).
Still others have charged that a Popperian would lack reasons to choose between competing theories (even if one has been refuted) for practical purposes. In OK, Popper specifically addresses this objection. To the question about which theory we should rely on for practical action (from a rational point of view) he answers that - given that no theory has been shown to be true, or can be shown to be true — we should not rely on any theory. To the question which theory we should prefer for practical action (again, from a rational point of view), he says that we should prefer the besttested theory: In other words, there is no 'absolute reliance'; but since we have to choose, it will be 'rational' to choose the best-tested theory.
