Karl Popper
    #3462381 - 12/08/04 12:58 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I've recently read some things that got me interested in the works of Karl Popper. Specifically, the discussion was in relation to Objectivism? vs. Popper's ideas about an objective philosophy. However, in what I encountered there was no mention of specific writings of his. Could anyone who is familiar with his work offer some suggestions and brief descriptions of books I may investigate?

Thank in advance.

List of his works at the bottom of the piece, as well as books by commentators on his philosophy.

Glad to see someone else interested in Karl Popper. I think the man had his feet on the ground in a way that is rare among philosohpers.

Two books you should read:
The logic of scientific discovery
The Open Society and it's enemies
