The Myth of the Framework
In Defence of Science and Rationality
championship of rational thought and his effective exposure of confusion
and fanaticism in this region, and their often terrible consequences,
are a genuine asset of Western culture.
Sir Isaiah Berlin
Popper is at
pains to defend rationality and scientific realism in an age when reason
and truth are frequently under threat from those who should have been
the defenders of both not least the philosophers themselves. Roger Caldwell, Literary Review
In a literary career spanning sixty year, Karl
Popper has made some of the most important contributions to the twentieth-century
discussion of science and rationality. The
Myth of the Framework is a new collection of some of Poppers
most important material on this subject. In place of intellectual fashions,
Popper offers his own critical rationalism- a view that he regards both
as a theory of knowledge and as an attitude towards human life, human
morals and democracy.
