Been doing some reflection. I hope to explain how I think Critical Preference works, along with some questions (criticisms).
Critical Preference entails the theory that falsification attempts have real potential (propensity) to falsify those existing theories that happen to be false in the first place, and so theories that are better criticised have lower potential to be false than theories that are poorly criticised.
But how do you measure (decide on) the actual potential of your falsification attempts? How do you measure (decide) the relative severity with which competing theories have been criticised?
Also, how meaningful is it to prefer the best (fittest) theory, if the second-best theory has been criticised nearly as much?
