The Rationality of Scientific Revolutions.
Oxford: Clarendon Press,, 1975. Offprint from Rom Harré, (ed.) Problems of Scientific Revolution: Scientific Progress and Obstacles to Progress in the Sciences. The Herbert Spencer Lectures 1973. 31 photocopied leaves, stapled at top left corner. Some light finger-marking to first and final leaves; in excellent condition overall. Offprint from Popper's contribution to the six Herbert Spencer Lectures given at Linacre College, Oxford in 1973. Inscribed by Popper on the first leaf, "With all good wishes from the author". In his lecture, Popper makes the distinction between scientific revolutions, "which are subject to rational criteria of progress", and ideological revolutions, "which are only rarely rationally defensible", and discusses "progress in science largely from an evolutionary point of view - more precisely, from the point of view of natural selection".
