Rationality / justification / Field: per a lower threshold: then good induction rules and perception rules count as weak a priori - coherence theory: higher threshold for rationality - our rules are not considered reasonable before the user has not shown by a combination of deduction, induction and perception, where the combination varies from case to case, that these rules are reliable.
