Karl Raimund Popper

Karl Raimund Popper

a English philosopher and sociologist
There is an almost universal tendency, perhaps an inborn tendency, to suspect the good faith of a man who holds opinions that differ from our own opinions. … It obviously endangers the freedom and the objectivity of our discussion if we attack a person instead of attacking an opinion or, more precisely, a theory.More Karl Raimund Popper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Piecemeal social engineering resembles physical engineering in regarding the ends as beyond the province of technology.More Karl Raimund Popper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The future is always present, as a promise, a lure and a temptation.More Karl Raimund Popper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For myself, I am interested in science and in philosophy only because I want to learn something about the riddle of the world in which we live, and the riddle of man's knowledge of that world. And I believe that only a revival of interest in these riddles can save the sciences and philosophy from an obscurantist faith in the expert's special skill and in his personal knowledge and authority.More Karl Raimund Popper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The fundamental thing about human languages is that they can and should be used to describe something; and this something is, somehow, the world. To be constantly and almost exclusively interested in the medium - in spectacle-cleaning - is a result of a philosophical mistake.More Karl Raimund Popper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
