This book addresses issues ranging from the philosophy of science to literary criticism and it aims to make them accessible to anyone who is interested, regardless of academic training or qualifications. Philosophy should have something to offer everyone and it should not become the exclusive preserve of specialists. As Karl Popper said, we are all philosophers some of the time and if we find that the professionals do not speak to our condition the problem may lie with them, not with us.
The articles collected here were written over a long time for many different purposes and publications. They are unified by the thrust to explain how Popper's ideas correct various debilitating errors in thinking that are widespread and are actively promulgated by philosophers. He has broken with three major philosophical preoccupations:
1. The justification of knowledge by authority.
2. The theory that knowledge is a form of belief.
3. The analysis of concepts and the meaning of words.
