This book demonstrates that Karl Popper's philosophy of science, with its emphasis on the method of trial and error, is largely based on the psychology of Otto Selz. Selz's theory of problem solving and scientific discovery laid the foundation for much of contemporary cognitive psychology. This original analysis covers Popper's early writings before he began his career as a philosopher.
