Conjectures and Refutations: The Growth of Scientific Knowledge.

POPPER Karl R. (1963.)


Available to view at our Curzon Street shop.

First US edition. 8vo. xi, [1], 412 pp. Original red cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, dust jacket (internally clean and unmarked; spine panel just the slightest shade toned, some trivial shelf wear to extremities, small amount of faint marking to rear panel, in all otherwise respects a very fine, notably bright copy). New York, Basic Books.

Perhaps Popper's most wide-ranging and popular work, gathering together his articles and lectures to chart the growth of scientific understanding, and its influence on history and thought. 'The essays and lectures of which this book composed are variations upon one very simple theme - the thesis that we can learn from our mistakes'(preface). Popper dedicated the work to Friedrich von Hayek. Originally published earlier in the same year in the UK by Routledge.
