It is now taken almost as granted by many people in academia that Karl Popper's philosophy has proved itself untenable due to certain inherent flaws in the philosophy itself. This forum's purpose is to explore this issue and determine if this is indeed the case or not. Among philosophers of interest for this forum are Hilary Putnam, Imre Lakatos, Thomas Kuhn, David Stove, Peter Winch, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Paul Feyerabend, W.V. Quine, Richard Rorty, Joseph Agassi, W.W. Bartley III, Peter Munz and many others.
Conversation is not strictly limited to a relentless comparison and contrast of Popper with other philosophers. Instead people may feel free to spend time on other philosophers of interest.
