"We are not students of some subject matter but students of problems" Conjectures and Refutations, p. 67. But what problem was Popper a student of? Asked this question, Popper might no doubt reply that he has already answered it. And, of all philosophers, he has tried hardest to articulate what motivated his philosophy.
