S.M.A.R.T.'s Ritual Abuse Pages New Left Review - NLR 90, November-December 2014 A robbery at the Wittgenstein Bank Fantastically Weird Shit Contretemps | Revue critique Karl Popper 1. Life Karl Raimund Popper was born on 28 July 1902 in Vienna, which at that time could make some claim to be the cultural epicentre of the western world. His parents, who were of Jewish origin, brought him up in an atmosphere which he was later to describe as ‘decidedly bookish’. His father was a lawyer by profession, but he also took a keen interest in the classics and in philosophy, and communicated to his son an interest in social and political issues which he was to never lose. Popper had a rather melancholic personality and took some time to settle on a career; he was a trainee carpenter for a time, obtained a primary school teaching diploma in 1925, took a Ph.D. in philosophy in 1928 under the supervision of Karl Bühler and qualified to teach mathematics and physics in secondary school in 1929. In later years Popper came under philosophical criticism for his prescriptive approach to science and his emphasis on the logic of falsification. 2. 3. 4. 5. Vs(a) = CtT(a) − CtF(a), 6.
