Chapter 7 is genius.
"A rationalist is simply someone for whom it is more important to learn than to be proved right..."

Perhaps a good place to start in this review of "All Life Is Problem Solving" is to focus on one essay, "Towards an Evolutionary Theory of Knowledge" written in 1989.

Karl Popper (1902-1994) elegantly proposes that knowledge is linked to expectations. These expectations express theories of reality. Thus knowledge expresses theories of reality. We as with all living things have propensities to guess reality based on hypotheses which logically and psychologically precede observation. Encounters wit
مجموعهی پانزده مقاله و گفتار از پوپر که توسط خود او در دو بخش تنظیم شده: بخش نخست مسائل علوم طبیعی و بخش دوم اندیشههایی در باب تاریخ و سیاست. این پانزده مقاله و گفتار خواننده را با بسیاری از نظرات مهم و تاثیرگذار پوپر آشنا میکند.
ترجمه آقای خواجیان هرچند قابل قبول است، اما چندان قوی و روان نیست. اما نظرات جذاب و جسورانهی پوپر باعث شد از خواندن این کتاب لذت ببرم، گرچه پیش از این بیشتر این نظرات را، به ویژه بخش نخست، مفصلتر در کتابهای دیگر خوانده بودم.
این کتاب دومین کتابی که از پوپر خوندم. پوپر همه چیزهایی که من حس میکنم و البته خیلی بیشتر از اون رو با کلماتی که اگه منم بودم همونها رو استفاده میکردم توضیح میده. کلا پوپر باعث میشه که خیلی از افکارم برای خودم ترجمه بشه.

هذا النوع من الكتب يجعل عقلي يفكر ، يتسائل ، ويبحث عن الإجابات . مازلت في بدايته .
لنا عودة لاحقاً. مصطلحاته عميقة لا استطيع فهمها :)

I read this book because I'd been asked to write a pamphlet on problem solving, not because I've studied philosophy or because I'm up to speed on Popper's thinking. I found the subject matter in some of the essays was really interesting and rounded and in others, there was a lot of pondering and back referring to previous works not in the book. As it turned out, Popper is talking about scientific problem solving - black ravens, white swans, rather than every day problem solving - do I leave him/ ...more

CH2: A very poorly argued essay about the mind-body problem. It's clear he didn't fully understand the positions he was attacking or have any understanding of mereology and type-token physicalism distinction. What he interestingly notes though is that our understanding of a distinction between consciousness and the world is socialized and not inherent.

CH15: Very interesting. Popper talks about how he became a 'philosopher' without deciding to or really attempting to. He just did what interested
الجيد في الكتاب أنه مبسط وتفهم من الجزء الاول منه فلسفة بوبر العلمية بكل وضوح
الجزء الثاني كان عن التاريخ والسياسة ونقد الماركسية وضرورة السلام، مقالات متفرقة تستحق القراءة
