Summary Over the last few years there has been a resurgent interest in various scientific disciplines in Popper's arguments. To gain a greater appreciation of Popper's scientific arguments, they need to be viewed in relation to his broader philosophy and where this stands within the history of ideas.

Such arguments are crucial for an appreciation of his scientific and political writings. I argue that.
