Karl Raimund Popper

Karl Raimund Popper

a English philosopher and sociologist
Appealing to his [Einstein's] way of expressing himself in theological terms, I said: If God had wanted to put everything into the universe from the beginning, He would have created a universe without change, without organisms and evolution, and without man and man's experience of change. But he seems to have thought that a live universe with events unexpected even by Himself would be more interesting than a dead one.More Karl Raimund Popper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The growth of our knowledge is the result of a process closely resembling what Darwin called 'natural selection'; that is, the natural selection of hypotheses: our knowledge consists, at every moment, of those hypotheses which have shown their (comparative) fitness by surviving so far in their struggle for existence, a competitive struggle which eliminates those hypotheses which are unfit.More Karl Raimund Popper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Thus science must begin with myths, and with the criticism of myths; neither with the collection of observations, nor with the invention of experiments, but with the critical discussion of myths, and of magical techniques and practices.More Karl Raimund Popper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It must be possible for an empirical system to be refuted by experience.More Karl Raimund Popper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The initial stage, the act of conceiving or inventing a theory, seems to me neither to call for logical analysis nor to be susceptible of it.More Karl Raimund Popper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
