This is the translation of the second volume of Karl Popper's postscript to The Logic of Scientific Discovery, and contains the core of Popper's argumentation. He contends that human rationality is, as far as criticism is concerned, infinite. It is however finite in its deduction of predictions. Popper shows that both infiniteness and finiteness are necessary in their field in order for human rationality to exist.
