First edition of one of the great works of twentieth-century philosophy, originally published here (actually in the Autumn of 1934) as Volume 9 of 'Schriften zur Wissenschaftlichen Weltauffassung' edited by Phillip Frank and Moritz Schlick. In 1959 Popper brought out a reformulated version of the work in English under the title The Logic of Scientific Discovery. 'One cannot help feeling that, if it had been originally translated as soon as it had been 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' (Times Literary Supplement). Popper's central insight is the logical asymmetry between verification and falsification: while no number of positive outcomes of experimental tests can prove that a scientific theory is true, it takes only one counterexample to prove it false. Thus falsifiability is the criterion which demarcates true science from pseudoscience: a theory is properly scientific if and only if it makes claims definite enough to be refutable in principle by testing – as for example Einstein's theory of relativity does, while astrology, Freudianism, and the Marxist theory of history do not. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, vi, 248 pp., [2] pp., original printed wrappers, spine a little darkened and with slight wear at foot, isolated pencil marginalia and underlining, a nice copy.
