Synthesis Philosophica 26 (1):175-193 (2011)

Different kinds of sentences are of immense importance for Popper’s epistemology, because they are the decisive factor for any scientific success. The basic sentences guarantee the possibility of falsification. And the method of falsification is essential for real science that is independent from an unprovable and impracticable concept of truth. But especially this traditional concept of truth leads to a lot of problems, also concerning the systematic appearance of Popper’s philosophy. The paper wants to point out these problems in order to discuss Popper’s idea of science
