A Skeptical Look at Popper, and then Gardner

The content of post will be worthwhile to those who are interested in the philosophy of science and/or how we can know anything.

The prolific Martin Gardner did a (dismissive) examination of Karl Popper in 2001. The essay was included in a book in 2003 and two critiques of that examination soon followed. Both are relatively sophisticated, but each is important in its own way.

Given that most of this stuff deals with epistemology, it might be useful to read this first.
