TCS assumes that Popperian epistemology applies equally to all knowledge creation, including in particular to the acquisition of existing knowledge.

Barry and I chose these articles not because we agree with them, but because they may provoke useful criticism. Not all worthwhile articles are appropriate for The Critical Rationalist, because either they have been published elsewhere or are too anecdotal or expository, or are simply not intended as a scholarly product. Substantial criticisms of these articles may well be suitable for TCR.
