I. Hrušovský and His Analyses of the Development of Scientific Knowledge

(Original title: Hrušovského analýzy vývinu vedeckého poznania)
Filozofia, 64 (2009), 10, 949-959.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Slovak

The article deals with the articulation of the model of empirical science (i.e. the model of hypothetical confirmationism) in I. Hrušovský’s writings. Further, it examines Hrušovský’s conception of the development of scientific knowledge as related to his concept of “radical revision” (corresponding to scientific revolution). The authors draw mainly from Hrušovský’s books written in 1935 – 1948.
