Popper, Sir Karl (Raimund)

(28 jul. 1902, Viena, Austria–17 sept. 1994, Croydon, Greater London, Inglaterra).

Filósofo británico de las ciencias naturales y sociales de origen austríaco. En La lógica de la investigación científica (1934), rechazó la concepción tradicional de la inducción, que sostiene que una hipótesis científica puede ser verificada mediante la acumulación de observaciones confirmadoras, para afirmar, en cambio, que en el mejor de los casos sólo se puede demostrar la falsedad de una hipótesis científica. Sus últimas obras comprenden The Open Society and Its Enemies [La sociedad abierta y sus enemigos] (1945), La miseria del historicismo (1957) y Postscript to the Logic of Scientific Discovery [Postfacio a la lógica del descubrimiento científico] (3 vol., 1981–82).
