Quote of the day

"I may be wrong and you may be right, and by an effort, we may get nearer to the truth."

With this sentence, Karl Popper (1902-1994) summarized his support for an "open society" where individuals are free to criticize each other through constructive debates.

The Austrian philosopher wrote "The open society and its enemies" while he was in exile in New Zealand during the second world war.

I will start reading this book soon.
I haven't finished to read "Power: A new social analysis" by Bertrand Russel
