|The Karl Popper Foundation Klagenfurt distributes this quarterly newsletter by electronic mail to all those persons and institutions whose names are on its mailing list (which currently contains some 620 entries). The main purpose of the newsletter is to provide advance notice of meetings, and to record recent publications, in the area of critical rationalism (widely understood).|
The normal practice of the Karl Popper Newsletter will be to announce forthcoming meetings only when their dates are fixed and an appropriate link is provided to an external website. Recent publications will normally be announced only when they have appeared in print (or online), and full bibliographical details are made available.
Every effort will be made to provide only truthful information, but the KPF Klagenfurt cannot take responsibility for the accuracy of sites to which it provides a link. Please note that this is a newsletter, not a discussion forum, and comments on items listed should be directed to their authors, not to the KPF Klagenfurt.
You are invited to send to kp...@aau.at any notices that you would like to be considered for inclusion in issue #15 of the newsletter by March 5, 2021.
The past issues of the Newsletter are archived at www.aau.at/kpf/newsletter/.
If you receive the present notice and do not wish to be contacted again, please send a brief note to this effect to kp...@aau.at.
How Karl Popper Has Made a Difference in Our Lives
- Testimonies from the Five Continents -ourkarlpopper.net
CALL for SUBMISSIONS
It is with great pleasure that I introduce this new blogging project dedicated to the work and philosophy of Karl Popper: ourkarlpopper.net. This blog is not about the work of Karl Popper itself, but rather about how you got to know Karl Popper and his philosophy, and the type of impression that the man and his work made on you.
The purpose of the blog is to collect testimonies, not longer than 3,500 words, of how Karl Popper’s ideas have made a difference in your life. It would be great if you could also describe how you found his work, including the first book of his that you read, and the context — time, place, occasion — during which you encountered Popper’s oeuvre for the first time. As of December 4th 2020, six contributions have been published and I look forward to publishing many more.
Submissions can be sent to ourkar...@gmail.com. To speed up the process of acceptance and publication, please read the Calls for submissions page carefully.

Guests and participants shall have an opportunity to introduce themselves on the half hour.
