Notes

First edition, first impression, presentation copy from the author to his surgeon, inscribed on the front free endpaper "To C. I. Cooling, from Karl R. Popper Christmas 1964". Conjectures and Refutations was one of Popper's most wide-ranging and popular works, gathering together his articles and lectures to chart the growth of scientific understanding, and its influence on history. "The essays and lectures of which this book composed are variations upon one very simple theme - the thesis that we can learn from our mistakes" (preface). The book is dedicated to Friedrich von Hayek.
