Sir Karl Popper (1902-1994)
The most important philosopher of science since Francis Bacon (1561-1626), Sir Karl Popper finally solved the puzzle of scientific method, which in practice had never seemed to conform to the principles or logic described by Bacon see The Great Devonian Controversy , by Martin J. S. Rudwick, for a case study of Baconian rhetoric and expectations being contradicted by actual practice and results. Instead of scientific knowledge being discovered and verified by way of inductive generalizations, leaping from perceptual data into blank minds, in terms that go back to Aristotle , Popper realized that science advances instead by deductive falsification through a process of "conjectures and refutations." It is imagination and creativity , not induction, that generates real scientific theories, which is how Einstein could study the universe with no more than a piece of chalk. Experiment and observation test theories, not produce them. This was not, in retrospect, so hard to understand; and some philosophers, like Kant , had come close to recognizing it. It is still subject to some dispute, though mainly from those who misunderstand

A special thank you to Derek Murray (Director of Creative Design for Forth Radio, Scotland) for his inimitable voice and also to TV, radio and film composer and sound wizard Paul Wilson (Director and owner of The Production Line , and Head of Sound at Picardy T.V., Edinburgh Sir Karl Raimund Popper was born in Vienna on 28 July 1902. His rise from a modest background as an assistant cabinet maker and school teacher to one of the most influential theorists and leading philosophers was characteristically Austrian. Popper commanded international audiences and conversation with him was an intellectual adventure - even if a little rough -, animated by a myriad of philosophical problems. His intense desire to tear away at the veneer of falsity in pursuit of the truth lead him to contribute to a field of thought encompassing (among others) political theory, quantum mechanics, logic, scientific method and evolutionary theory. Popper challenged some of the ruling orthodoxies of philosophy: logical positivism, Marxism, determinism and linguistic philosophy. He argued that there are no subject matters but only problems and our desire to solve them. He said that scientific theories cannot be verified but only tentatively refuted, and that the best philosophy is about profound problems, not word meanings. Isaiah Berlin rightly said that Popper produced one of the most devastating refutations of Marxism. Through his ideas Popper promoted a critical ethos, a world in which the give and take of debate is highly esteemed in the precept that we are all infinitely ignorant, that we differ only in the little bits of knowledge that we do have, and that with some co-operative effort we may get nearer to the truth.

Section Headings:
Realgymnasium Popper obtained a primary school teaching diploma in 1925, took a Ph.D. in philosophy in 1928, and qualified to teach mathematics and physics in secondary school in 1929. The dominant philosophical group in Vienna from its inception in 1928 was the Wiener Kreis Logik der Forschung in 1934. The book - which he was later to claim rang the death knell for logical positivism - attracted more attention than Popper had anticipated, and he was invited to lecture in England in 1935. He spent the next few years working productively on science and philosophy, but storm clouds were gathering - the growth of Nazism in Germany and Austria compelled him, like many other intellectuals who shared his Jewish origins, to leave his native country.

Research and Publishing
    The primary task of the Popper Project is to research, edit and publish books from the Karl Popper Archives, which the CEU has on loan from the Ianus Foundation. These 473 reels of microfilm contain the late Sir Karl Popper's unpublished manuscripts and correspondence through 1984. They represent a complete copy of the original papers currently housed in Stanford University’s Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace. The project envisions the joint publication by Routledge and CEU Press of more than ten volumes of Popper’s works, including correspondence, collected essays and complete texts.
    Two related tasks of the Popper Project are to further the understanding of critical rationalism - the philosophy of open society and open science - and the translation of Popper’s books into the languages of Central and Eastern Europe. The project seeks to do this through a series of Higher Education Support Program -supported “Popper Workshops” designed to bring together philosophers from the region to explore the problems of understanding, teaching and translating Popper’s philosophy. Over 100 philosophers from 25 countries have participated in these workshops and the project now anticipates the development of general workshops in philosophy.

Karl Raimund Popper
Karl Raimund Popper is widely regarded as the greatest philosopher of science and critic of Marxism of the 20th century. His ideas, more than those of any other single thinker, provided the spirit which led to the foundation of the Central European University. Born in Vienna, Popper taught philosophy first at the University of New Zealand, Christchurch; in 1945 he was appointed to the faculty at the London School of Economics where he served as Professor of Logic and Scientific Method from 1949 to 1969. Knighted in 1965, Popper was the recipient of numerous awards, including Sweden’s Sonning Prize (1973) and Japan’s Kyoto Prize (1992). He was the first to receive Spain’s Catalonia Prize (1989) for his contribution to European culture and the first recipient of the Central European University’s Open Society Prize (1994). His books include The Logic of Scientific Discovery (1959, translated from his 1934 Logik der Forschung ); T

32. The Problem Of Induction, By Sir Karl Popper
Essay by karl popper, arguing that there is no such thing as inductive inference.
Home Popper has argued (I think successfully) that a scientific idea can never be proven true, because because no matter how many observations seem to agree with it, it may still be wrong. On the other hand, a single contrary experiment can prove a theory forever false.
The Problem of Induction (1953, 1974)
For a brief formulation of the problem of induction we can turn to Born, who writes: '. . . no observation or experiment, however extended, can give more than a finite number of repetitions'; therefore, 'the statement of a law - B depends on A - always transcends experience. Yet this kind of statement is made everywhere and all the time, and sometimes from scanty material. ' 1 In other words, the logical problem of induction arises from (1) Hume's discovery (so well expressed by Born) that it is impossible to justify a law by observation or experiment, since it 'transcends experience'; (2) the fact that science proposes and uses laws 'everywhere and all the time'. (Like Hume, Born is struck by the 'scanty material', i.e. the few observed instances upon which the law may be based.) To this we have to add (3) the principle of empiricism which asserts that in science only observation and experiment may decide upon the acceptance or rejection of scientific statements, including laws and theories. These three principles, (1), (2), and (3), appear at first sight to clash; and this apparent clash constitutes the logical problem of induction.

New Zealand Early Days at LSE Lakatos ... Retirement Karl Popper was born in Vienna on 28 July 1902, and died in London on 17 September 1994.
In 1925 he enrolled in the newly founded Pedagogic Institute. He was soon giving unofficial seminars to fellow students. He said that he learnt very little from the teachers there; but he now met two university professors, Karl Bühler and Heinrich Gomperz, who were important for his intellectual development. His investigations began to shift from the psychology to the logic of scientific inquiry. In 1928 he received his Ph.D., passing with the highest grade; his examiners were Bühler and Moritz Schlick. He now became a qualified schoolteacher. At this Institute he also met Josefine Henninger, or ‘Hennie’; they married in 1930. It was the beginning of a remarkable partnership, each devoted to the other, which lasted until Hennie’s death in 1985. He was reading Kant intensively, and also works by contemporaries such as Rudolf Carnap, Kurt Gödel, Hans Hahn, Karl Menger, Hans Reichenbach, Richard von Mises, Friedrich Waismann, and Ludwig Wittgenstein. Gomperz introduced him to Victor Kraft, who was the first member of the Circle whom Popper had met and the author of a book on scientific method which he found valuable. He attended Carnap’s seminar in about 1929, and an uncle introduced him to Herbert Feigl, who encouraged him to publish his ideas in a book. This launched him into the writing of
