  1. The Cambridge Companion to Popper.Jeremy Shearmur & Geoffrey Stokes (eds.) - 2016 - Cambridge University Press.
    Karl Popper was one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century.

    Karl Popper's Political Philosophy of Social Science.Geoff Stokes - 1997 - Philosophy of the Social Sciences 27 (1):56-79.
