Science and the Open Society
The Future of Karl Popper's Philosophy

Mark Notturno, Central European University Foundation, New York

"It is the best introduction to Popper's work that I have ever read. given the recent deaths of Popper, Gellner and Feyerabend, the time is ripe for a text that shows the future relevance of the Popperian legacy. Its hard to imagine a better book than Notturno's in that respect."
- Professor Steve Fuller, University of Warwick

"... the book can be considered as one of the best introductory works to Popperian philosophy, in particular Popper's political theory. In other words Science and the Open Society is a very remarkable map of the Popperian legacy to the political science literature." - Millennium: Journal of Intrernational Studies

Science and the Open Society is a clearly argued and easy to read defense of Karl Popper's philosophy by Dr. Mark Notturno, the man whom Popper chose to research and edit his archives. The author argues that Popper's ideas about science and open society are still largely misunderstood in the west, but are now more important than ever in providing inspiration for the people in Central and Eastern Europe and Middle Asia who are struggling to open up their closed societies.

This groundbreaking volume draws together themes from Popper's epistemology and social philosophy - showing, for example, the connections between his distrust of communism and inductivism, his resistance to institutionalized science and logical positivism, and his opposition to intellectual authority and bureaucracy. Notturno discusses Popper's disagreements with Wittgenstein, Freud, Carnap, Gruenbaum and Kuhn, while developing the implications of his view for a wide range of contemporary issues, including politics, education, logic, critical thinking and the history of 20th century philosophy.

Science and the Open Society is written for the general reader in a style that will appeal to philosophers and non-philosophers alike.
