Karl Popper is one of many greatest philosophers of the science world of the 20th century . He was not only a philosopher of science but also socially and politically , he was quite critical and if he felt like a theory does not add up he will argue and correct it so it will be made logical .Popper was reasonable and realistic when it came to theory 's he was an enthusiastic man of science and also in human activities .When Popper was a young man he went to a Realgymnasium (a secondary school for young boys to help them go to university in the future ) , there he was not happy at all with how they wear teaching him , he went ill and that caused him to stay at home for a quite a time , In the year 1918 he went to attend the university…show more content…
It concerns the support or validation of basic ways and means , ways that are expected or infer , in Hume 's words he wrote something like this “ examples of which we have had none experiences which are similar to those of which we have had experiences with ” The problem of induction is the philosophical examination of whether inductive analysis leads to knowledge understood in the classic philosophical sense .

To remove it from science would mean absolutely nothing lower than to deny science of the will to decide the truth or falsity of its theories " . At this moment you can see this notion of induction can not in any case be a simply validation or logical truth like some sort of repetition or a critical statement . Reichenbach says that this principle of induction is extremely important for scientific ways it defines the real science theories
