In this work, Karl Popper mainly deals with and criticizes the anti-naturalistic and pro-naturalistic ideas expressed in historicism. However the book is not restricted to this criticism alone. It is the application of Karl Popper's theory of science to politics, sociology and history and the presentation of new, surprising solutions for problems in these areas. It is a standard work for the application of scientific theories to concrete practice.
In this work, Karl Popper mainly deals with and criticizes the anti-naturalistic and pro-naturalistic ideas expressed in historicism, which is the theory that there are laws of development in history and that human beings are able to discover them. However the book is not restricted to this criticism alone. It is the application of Karl Popper's theory of science to politics, sociology and history and the presentation of new, surprising solutions for problems in these areas. Anyone interested in political, sociological and historical questions will be able to find ideas and solutions which are as relevant today as they were 50 years ago in this book. It is a standard work for the application of scientific theories to concrete practice.
