In contrast, Karl Popper's seminal book _The Logic of Scientific Discovery_ has lapsed into relative obscurity. Although the two men debated the nature of science only once, the legacy of this encounter has dominated intellectual and public discussions on the topic ever since.   "The Logic of Scientific Discovery", first published in German in by Karl Popper, (), opened a new way in the philosophy of science. He began his epistemological work with "The Two Fundamental Problems of the Theory of Knowledge" (unpublished immediately), and he gave a summary of it in the first edition of his "Logic"/5(59).

The Logic of Scientific Discovery by Karl Popper is an analysis of scientific thinking through his particular view of epistemology. Popper is a well-known philosopher of science. In this work, he investigates where scientific findings fit into philosophy through examining what differentiates true knowledge from false knowledge. It is shown that several relevant refutations of Einstein's theories were not accepted by Einstein as significant, and that therefore Einstein did not follow Popper's methodological rules. This is regarded as a strong case against Popper's criterion of demarcation.

Popper was born in in Vienna to a prosperous Jewish family who had converted to Lutheran Christianity. He took a doctorate in at the Faculty of Philosophy in his home city, and, in , while working as a schoolteacher, wrote this, his first book - Logik der Forschung (The Logic of Scientific Discovery).In it he criticises the customary ways of determining scientific truth; . For one thing, chapter 1, which in just 26 pages (not counting six pages of notes and references) covers everything from Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler and Newton to Maxwell and Lorentz to Einstein's early biography to a cardboard version of Popper versus Kuhn, is too superficial to be useful for such a course.

Sir Karl Popper (), which is printed in the book Conjectures and Refutations: in a concrete way because he lived during a time when psychoanalytic theories were all the rage at just the same time Einstein was laying out a new foundation for the physical sciences with the concept of relativity.

Popper -- Science versus non-science: Conjecture and refutation. Popper is one of the philosophers of science who has had the biggest impact on the practice of science. In this paper Popper is asking two related questions: 1) and Einstein.

Karl Popper observed these developments firsthand and came to draw a distinction between what he referred to as science and pseudoscience, which might best be summarized as science disconfirms.

EINSTEIN, POPPER AND THE THEORY OF LIGHT AND MATTER discusses under philosophical, logical and mathematical aspects the Brand: Tredition. Conjectures and Refutations is one of Karl Popper's most wide-ranging and popular works, notable not only for its acute insight into the way scientific knowledge grows, but also for applying those insights to politics and to history.

It provides one of the clearest and most accessible statements of the fundamental idea that guided his work: not only our knowledge, but our/5. User Review - Flag as inappropriate Review by Greg Nyquist This is the book where Popper first introduced his famous "solution" to the problem of induction.

Originally publish in German inthis version is Popper's own English translation undertaken in the s. It should go without saying that the book is a classic in philosophic epistemology--perhaps the most important 5/5(3).

Described by the philosopher A.J. Ayer as a work of 'great originality and power', this book revolutionized contemporary thinking on science and knowledge. Ideas such as the now legendary doctrine of 'falsificationism' electrified the scientific community, influencing even working scientists, as well as post-war philosophy.

Popper challenged the obsession with inductive methods that tends to produce the “cargo cult” approach and some leading scientists who took philosophy seriously agreed with him, among them Einstein, Eccles and Medawar.

To turn Karl [Popper]'s view on its head, it is precisely the abandonment of critical discourse that marks the transition of science. Once a field has made the transition, critical discourse recurs only at moments of crisis when the bases of the field are again in jeopardy.
