THE LOGIC OF SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY


The problem which I tried to solve by proposing the criterion of falsifiability was neither a
problem of meaningfulness or significance, nor a problem of truth or acceptability. It was the
problem of drawing a line between the statements of the empirical sciences, and all other statements-whether they are of a religious or of a metaphysical character, or simply pseudo-scientific. Years later, I called this first problem of mine the "problem of demarcation." The criterion of falsifiability is a solution to this problem of demarcation, for it says that statements, in order to be ranked as scientific, must be capable of conflicting with possible, or conceivable, observations.



THE OPEN SOCIETY AND ITS ENEMIES

"Plato recognized only two categories: Individualism equaling Egotism, and
Altruism equaling collectivism. This has created considerable confusion in
speculation on ethical matters, even down to our own day”.
