read Conjectures and Refutations The Growth of Scientific Knowledge doc Ü Paperback ´ 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 poli Ic knowledge grows but also for applying those insights to politics and to history It provides one of the clearest and most accessible statements of This is in places an extremely engaging and intriguing book The history of philosophy Popper describes in the early chapters is fascinating as is his chapter 15 demolishing Hegelian and Marxist dialectic; between Gilson and Popper I have a feeling of much stronger grip of the history of philosophy where fortunately Gilson is strong where Popper is weak ie medieval philosophyLet me uote from that chapter 15 a sentence out of a passage that I might take as a banner for the intellectual contribution I want someone most to beueath to theologyThis sketchy reasoning by modern dialecticians should emphasize that for anyone who wants to promote truth and enlightenment it is a necessity and even a duty to train himself in the art of expressing things clearly and unambiguously even if this means giving up certain niceties of metaphor and clever double meanings p 322It is a shame that Popper was so clearly dismissive of the Catholic faith and its intellectual tradition; he could see only the abuses of the Middle Ages which abounded just as do the errors of every age In reality I think Catholic theology is uniuely suited to debate along critical lines and humanity would profit greatly if its dogmas and the world outside were to be pondered critically rather than with the kind of fluffy metaphorical thinking and desire to avoid all criticism of authorities even when they clearly conflict and are in need of reconciliation and contradiction

Karl Popper ä Conjectures and Refutations The Growth of Scientific Knowledge kindle

Conjectures and Refutations The Growth of Scientific KnowledgeThe fundamental idea that guided his work not only our knowledge but our aims and our standards grow through an unending process of trial and error Review in English not my mother tongue and Spanish belowA set of essays on epistemology that can be read independently When it came to understanding it I had the advantage of having read a disciple of his David Deutsch who writes even clearly Actually if you have already read a book by Deutsch this book does not bring so many new important thingsI liked it a lot but the part that interested me the most that talks about the concepts of probability verisimilitude empirical content and verification was very difficult partly due to lack of clarity in the exposition in those parts and partly by a notation that is unfamiliar to me I'll go back to those parts when I know about probabilityPopper is a giant and I was pleasantly surprised because I did not expect it that his conception of nationalism is very similar to mine nationalism is absurdUn conjunto de ensayos sobre epistemología ue se pueden leer de manera independiente A la hora de entenderlo yo contaba con la ventaja de haber leído a un discípulo suyo David Deutsch ue escribe todavía más claramente En realidad si ya has leído algún libro de Deutsch este libro no aporta tantas cosas importantes nuevasMe ha gustado bastante pero la parte ue más me interesaba ue habla de los conceptos de probabilidad verosimilitud contenido empírico y verificación era muy difícil en parte por falta de claridad en la exposición y en parte por una notación ue no me es familiar Volveré a esos ensayos cuando sepa más sobre probabilidadPopper es un gigante y me gustó porue no me lo esperaba ue su concepción del nacionalismo es muy similar a la mía el nacionalismo es absurdo
