Conjectures and Refutations is one of Karl Popper’s most wide-ranging and popular works, notable not only for its acute insight into the way scientific knowledge grows, but also for applying those insights to politics and to history. It provides one of the clearest and most accessible statements of the fundamental idea that guided his work.
Read the first part of Popper’s paper (pages 1-10) or watch the video (which reads the first ten pages) and post your personal opinion about the concept of falsification.
You can use the following questions to guide your answer: Do you think it is a valid way to define scientific practice? do you think it can be applied to all branches of science? Did you change your mind about inductive reasoning? Do you think psychoanalysis is scientific? Do you think Popper’s falsification theory limits what we can consider science?
Please be sure you use other sources if necessary to learn more about the subject if you need to. Name your references if you use them in your post. You DON’T have to write a comment to your classmates.
