The link is to an easy listening Radio 4 In Our Time programme on Karl Popper, Scientific and Political Theorist and advocate of ' Falsification ' as a test of any theory i.e. can it be falsified ? Thus he debunked Marxism and Psycho-analysis, demonstrating that they made no testable predictions but rather constantly explained away whatever happens when their predictions failed. He wrote a book called ' The Open Society and its Enemies ' but as I understand it he was drawing on H G Well's advocacy of ' The Open Conspiracy ' in a popular book of some thirty years before.* ' Open ' became a sort of buzz-word in the post-war consensus - ' Open Government ' and ' Open University ' and ' Open Mindedness ' etc. [ * The title ' The Open Society and its Enemies ' was suggested by John Niemeyer Findlay apparently - known to H G Wells ? - see http://repwblic.informe.com/viewtopic.php?p=1484#1484 ]
