In Search of a Better World

“Each of these essays speak out in Popper’s firm, clear, unambiguous voice…they are very readable and persuasive.” Nature

“All things living are in search of a better world.” Karl Popper, from the Preface

In Search of a Better World is a collection of Popper’s essays and lectures covering a range of subjects from the beginning of scientific speculation in classical Greece to the need for a new professional ethic based on the ideas of tolerance and intellectual responsibility. Popper discusses major figures of the Enlightenment such as Voltaire and Kant, as well as logic of the social science and role of science and self-criticism in the arts.

The essays offer striking new insights including insights into the thought of their author, one of the most forthright critics of Marxism and all totalitarian ideologies.
