The Republic of Science, by Ian C. Jarvie

The Emergence of Popper's Social View of Science, 1935-1945

The dust jacket announces: 'This book offers a careful re-reading of Popper's classic falsificationist demarcation of science, stressing its institutional aspects. Ian Jarvie tracks Popper's social thinking about science, individuals, institutions, and rationality through The Poverty of Historicism and The Open Society and its Enemies as he criticised and improved his earlier work. New links are established between the works of the 1935-1945 period, revealing them as a source for criticism of the institutions and governance of science'.
