Philosopher (jul 28, 1902 – sep 17, 1994)
Karl Popper made significant contributions to debates concerning general scientific methodology and theory choice, the demarcation of science from non-science, the nature of probability and quantum mechanics, and the methodology of the social sciences. His work is notable for its wide influence both within the philosophy of science, within science itself, and within a broader social context (Shea). He was widely known for his theory on falsification which stated that theories or hypotheses cannot be proved but instead disproved, or falsified.
