Popper: What is real scientific practice?
Using Popper’s paper that you read, do you find that his approach is a valid way to define scientific practice? Do you think it can be applied to all branches of science? Did you change your mind about inductive reasoning? Do you think psychoanalysis is scientific? Do you think Popper’s falsification theory limits what we can consider science?
Answer the questions in 400-500 words.
Please cite your work using both Popper’s paper and the Oakes reading to defend your ideas.
