Truth and Communcation

The Challenge of Karl Popper

Author(s): Ioan Biris
Subject(s): Philosophy

Summary/Abstract: In a conversation with Karl Otto Apel, the well-known philosopher of science, Karl Popper, drew his attention to the fact that the communicative function of language is what we share with animals, so communication does not have much importance. What is important in human language is the scope of the sentences, because the sentences are the only ones that allow man to speak in terms of truth about the real world. We call this the "challenge" of Karl Popper.
