The open society and its enemies by Karl R Popper( Book )

192 editions published between 1930 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written in political exile during the Second World War and first published in two volumes in 1945, Karl Popper's The Open Society and Its Enemies is one of the most influential books of the twentieth century. Hailed by Bertrand Russell as a 'vigorous and profound defence of democracy', its now legendary attack on the philosophies of Plato, Hegel and Marx exposed the dangers inherent in centrally planned political systems and through underground editions became an inspiration to lovers of freedom living under communism in Eastern Europe."--Jacket
The poverty of historicism by Karl R Popper( Book )

218 editions published between 1944 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On its publication in 1957, The Poverty of Historicism was hailed by Arthur Koestler as 'probably the only book published this year which will outlive the century.'A devastating criticism of fixed and predictable laws in history, Popper dedicated the book to all those 'who fell victim to the fascist and communist belief in Inexorable Laws of Historical Destiny.' Short and beautifully written, it has inspired generations of readers, intellectuals and policy makers. One of the most important books on the social sciences since the Second World War, it is a searing insight into the id
In search of a better world : lectures and essays from thirty years by Karl R Popper( Book )

35 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the course of a life of ninety years Sir Karl can look back on positive changes in the world - the vast reductions in mass poverty, the liberalization of penal systems, the defeat of dictatorships. The search for a better world is never complete, but in spite of two world wars and a long and dangerous cold war, it was not in vain." "The essays and lectures collected in this book chart many familiar as well as some less known aspects of Sir Karl's thinking - from his interest in the birth of scientific speculation in classical Greece to the destructive effects on the intellect of totalitarianism in twentieth-century states. His discussions range over problems of politics, the history of philosophy and great figures of the Enlightenment such as Voltaire and Kant, and the relation of science and art (in an address given at the 1979 Salzburg festival). The book offers important new insights into the thought of one of the greatest of living philosophers, and into the role of science in our civilization."--Jacket
The two fundamental problems of the theory of knowledge by Karl R Popper( Book )

53 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reporting in great detail on important research Popper carried out between 1930 and 1933, "Die beiden Grundprobleme der Erkenntnistheorie" was not published in German until 1979. The two fundamental problems of knowledge that lie at the centre of the book are the problem of induction, that although we are able to observe only a limited number of particular events, science nevertheless advances unrestricted universal statements; and the problem of demarcation, which asks for a separating line between empirical science and non-science. Popper seeks to solve these two basic problems with his celebrate theory of falsifiability. He argues that science is separated from non-science not by the verifiability but by the falsifiability of its theories. He argues also that the inferences made in science are not inductive but deductive; science does not start out from observations and proceed to generalise them, as many presume, but start with problems, which it attacks with bold conjectures. "The Two Fundamental Problems of the Theory of Knowledge" contains the seed of many of the celebrated arguments that were later to find definitive expression in Popper's most celebrated work, "The Logic of Scientific Discovery". --from publisher description
