Karl Popper, the most important philosopher of science

Karl Popper, the most important philosopher of science

“Karl Popper” is one of the great philosophers of the twentieth century, and one of the main influencers in the philosophy of the twenty-first century, because his philosophy came as a result of being influenced by several philosophical and scientific currents, which was allowed to form a major turning point for him, as he absorbed the scientific and philosophical trends of the era, starting with the use of high-tech machines Evolution, to monitor simple and minute variables and influences, and small quantitative accumulations, and was affected by many scientific revolutions that left their mark on his critical philosophical vision.

Among the influences that played a major role in Karl Popper’s philosophy was the discovery by the scientist “Ernest Mandel” of a new field of biology, which is genetics, and we should not forget, of course, the impact of the physicist Einstein. Basil Farhan Saleh in his book “Karl Popper and the Epistemological Turn” that based on these discoveries, Karl Popper’s critical scientific philosophy was based on researching scientific premises and axioms, and dissecting them with the scientific critical scalpel, which he did not abandon, and stressed criticism because it refutes scientific theories, and reveals errors. and gaps.

Philosophy by Popper included the various fields of science available at the time, in order to reach the truth. Later, many sciences separated from philosophy, as a result of the Enlightenment and Modernity eras, and one of the results of that was the establishment of experimental philosophy.

Karl Popper is the product of these philosophical and scientific currents, sometimes mixed and sometimes contradictory. Like all philosophers, Popper kept the theories that he saw as close to the truth, and rejected theories that did not come close to them.
