Routledge continues its commitment to publish
new works by Karl Popper and to make available all of his work to the
widest possible audience.
2002 is the Centenary of Karl Popper's birth. In May 2002, and as part of the Centenary celebrations,
we published a one volume hardback edition of The
Open Society and Its Enemies,
including a new preface by Václav Havel and a personal recollection
by E.H. Gombrich, on the story behind the book's first publication.
Later in the year the two-volume edition of this celebrated work will
be re-issued in the Routledge Classics.
This Centenary year will also see the re-issue
in the Routledge Classics of some of Poppers most influential texts
in the philosophy of science: The
Logic of Scientific Discovery and Conjectures
and Refutations; his pivotal work on the progress of history
and the methodology of the social sciences, The
Poverty of Historicism; and his acclaimed intellectual autobiography
The past two years have also seen the publication
in paperback of two Popper titles: his work on Presocratic philosophy,
World of Parmenides, and the selection of insightful writings
on Poppers main preoccupations during the last twenty-five years,
is Problem Solving.
