About this book

Described by the philosopher A.J. Ayer as a work of 'great originality and power', The Logic of Scientific Discovery revolutionized contemporary thinking on science and knowledge. Ideas such as the now legendary doctrine of 'falsificationism' electrified the scientific community, influencing even working scientists, as well as post-war philosophy. This astonishing work ranks alongside The Open Society and Its Enemies as one of Popper's most enduring books and contains insights and arguments that demand to be read to this day.

Media reviews

"One of the most important documents of the twentieth century."
– Peter Medawar, New Scientist

"One of the most important philosophical works of our century."
– Richard Wollheim, Observer

"One cannot help feeling that, if it had been translated as soon as it had been originally published, philosophy in this country might have been saved some detours. Professor Popper's thesis has that quality of greatness that, once seen, it appears simple and almost obvious."
