For Popper’s Birthday: Reading from Conjectures and Refutations (+ self-test)

images-10

28 July 1902 – 17 September 1994

Today is Karl Popper’s birthday. I’m linking to a reading from his Conjectures and Refutations[i] along with: Popper Self-Test Questions. It includes multiple choice questions, quotes to ponder, an essay, and thumbnail definitions at the end[ii].

Blog Readers who wish to send me their answers will have their papers graded [use the comments or error@vt.edu.] An A- or better earns a signed copy of my forthcoming book: Statistical Inference as Severe Testing: How to Get Beyond the Statistics Wars. [iii]

[i] Popper reading from Conjectures and Refutations
[ii] I might note the “No-Pain philosophy” (3 part) Popper posts on this blog: parts 12, and 3.

[iii] I posted this once before, but now I have a better prize.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY POPPER!
