Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(12), 1024. Walter B. Weimer replies to Fred Eidlin's comments (see record 2006-06389-041) on Weimar's review (see record 2006-06383-002) of The Philosophy of Karl Popper, Books 1 and 2 edited by Paul Arthur Schilpp (1974). Weimer states that Eidlin's comments beautifully illustrate his contention that the Schilpp/Popper volumes are bewildering to the psychologist unfamiliar with the issues that perplex philosophers. Unfortunately, Eidlin is either wrong or misleading in most of his rebuttals to the review. On one point, Eidlin may be correct–Weimer may well misunderstand the notion of objective or subjectless knowledge to which Popper alludes.
