Philosophy of polemus.com


When developing scientific or technological knowledge, each person builds a set of thoughts, memories, ideas which underly his judgment and take part of his intelligence. When it is organized and coherent, this knowledge induces faculty to apprehend the future events, with a certain degree of certainty and precision. It constitutes, then, at least implicitly, a theory of the outside world which makes it possible to act and to behave with more effectiveness.


How to judge quality of the theories carried by each one among us?


For Karl Popper, the scientific nature of a theory was carried by its capacity of being refuted. In other words, a nonrefutable assertion cannot claim to enter Science. In the same way, among the set of the ideas and beliefs of each one, some can be put at the reality-testing. It is enough to extract the predictions from them on the future and, at the proper time to check if those agreed to the real events. In this direction, any person yielding with the play of the prediction is comparable to a scientific theory!
