Title : Critical rationalist

Description :
The Critical Rationalist was a short-lived electronic journal (ISSN 1393-3809) devoted to pursuing and elaborating the philosophy of Karl Popper (1902-1994) and, in particular, his method of 'Critical Rationalism' as outlined in his work Conjectures and Refutations. Note the journal appears to have ceased pbulication in 1998 and there are only three extant past issues, all of which can be accessed on this site in a variety of formats. In the Popperian tradition, this site eschews philosophy as linguistic analysis, focusing on 'real' philosophical problems such as probability, induction, the mind-body problem, the nature of scientific theories and the philosophy of history. The site also exposes Popper's own philosophy to rigorous critical analysis: 'Comprehensively Critical Rationalism' (CCR). This site will be of use especially to anyone with an interest in Karl Popper and the philosophy of science.
