Karl Popper's Philosophy Of Science And Conventionalism


Abstract
The aim of the article is the discussion on similarities between Popperian philosophy of science and French conventionalism. I start with describing Popper's view on Duhem's and Poincaré's philosophy, and I point mistakes in interpretation committed by author of Logik der Forschung. The general conclusion from this study consists in drawing attention to significant similarity between Popperian and classical conventionalism ideal of scientific knowledge. The main difference I see in Popper's paradoxical stance on the problem of existence of experimentum crucis.
