Quotes of Karl Raimund Popper

Австрийский и британский философ и социолог.

  • ⋅Those who promise us paradise on earth never produced anything but a hell. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅Philosophers should consider the fact that the greatest happiness principle can easily be made an excuse for a benevolent dictatorship. We should replace it by a more modest and more realistic principle -- the principle that the fight against avoidable misery should be a recognized aim of public policy, while the increase of happiness should be left, in the main, to private initiative. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅Good tests kill flawed theories; we remain alive to guess again. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅Science may be described as the art of systematic over-simplification. /Karl Raimund Popper

  • ⋅Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅I personally call the type of government which can be removed without violence 'democracy,' and the other, 'tyranny.'. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅Those who promise us paradise on earth never produced anything but a hell. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅There is an almost universal tendency, perhaps an inborn tendency, to suspect the good faith of a man who holds opinions that differ from our own opinions. … It obviously endangers the freedom and the objectivity of our discussion if we attack a person instead of attacking an opinion or, more precisely, a theory. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅It is wrong to ask who will rule. The ability to vote a bad government out of office is enough. That is democracy. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅It is wrong to think that belief in freedom always leads to victory; we must always be prepared for it to lead to defeat. If we choose freedom, then we must be prepared to perish along with it. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅We must plan for freedom, and not only for security, if for no other reason than only freedom can make security more secure. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅There is no history of mankind, there is only an indefinite number of histories of all kinds of aspects of human life. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅There is no history, only histories. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅Instead of encouraging the student to devote himself to his studies for the sake of studying, instead of encouraging in him a real love for his subject and for inquiry, he is encouraged to study for the sake of his personal career; he is led to acquire only such knowledge as is serviceable in getting him over the hurdles which he must clear for the sake of his advancement. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅The more we learn about the world, and the deeper our learning, the more conscious, specific, and articulate will be our knowledge of what we do not know, our knowledge of our ignorance /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅It must be possible for an empirical system to be refuted by experience. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅All we can do is search for the falsity content in our best theory. /Karl Raimund Popper

  • ⋅Science is perhaps the only human activity in which errors are systematically criticized and, in time, corrected. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅Science is the century-old endeavour to bring together by means of systematic thought the perceptible phenomena of this world into as thorough-going an association as possible. To put it boldly, it is the attempt at a posterior reconstruction of existence by the process of conceptualization. Science can only ascertain what is, but not what should be, and outside of its domain value judgements of all kinds remain necessary. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅If we are uncritical we shall always find what we want: we shall look for, and find, confirmations, and we shall look away from, and not see, whatever might be dangerous to our pet theories. In this way it is only too easy to obtain what appears to be overwhelming evidence in favor of a theory which, if approached critically, would have been refuted. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅Appealing to his [Einstein's] way of expressing himself in theological terms, I said: If God had wanted to put everything into the universe from the beginning, He would have created a universe without change, without organisms and evolution, and without man and man's experience of change. But he seems to have thought that a live universe with events unexpected even by Himself would be more interesting than a dead one. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅no matter how many instances of white swans we may have observed, this does not justify the conclusion that all swans are white. /Karl Raimund Popper
  • ⋅Bold ideas, unjustified anticipations, and speculative thought, are our only means for interpreting nature: our only organon, our only instrument, for grasping her. And we must hazard them to win our prize. Those among us who are unwilling to expose their ideas to the hazard of refutation do not take part in the scientific game. /Karl Raimund Popper
