The paper presents the principles of constructive and destructive immanent critique of some system, as well as the principle of comparative critique. It appears that the consequential falslficationism gets to inner logical contradictions and that neither verification nor falsification in their purity and separation do exist and that in the background of Popper’s conception there is induction. In the further part of the paper Popper’s theses are compared with the history of science and it is pointed out that the history of science is much more complicated than to be explained by Popper’s conception.
