Summary
First published in English in 1959, this book revolutionized contemporary thinking about science and knowledge and is one of the most widely read books about science written in the twentieth century. It presents succinctly Popper's view of science and his solutions to two fundamental problems of the theory of knowledge: the demarcation of science from non-science, and the role of induction in the growth of scientific knowledge
