Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(9), 728. Walter B. Weimer replies to James G. Blight's comments (see record 2006-06570-070) on Weimer's review (see record 2006-06383-002) of The Philosophy of Karl Popper, Books 1 and 2 edited by Paul Arthur Schilpp (1974). Weimer responds to several issues raised by Blight: 1) Blight's unsupported statement of belief that Popper's World 3 is relevant to (humanistic) psychology; 2) the proposal that culture is an objective fact independent of both mind and body; 3) some exuberant overstatements, such as that “Plato plus Darwin equals Popper,” and that psychologists “must be prepared to deal exclusively with the products” of World 3; and 4) Why Weimer has attacked Popper when he have defended views that, on the surface, are very close to Popper's.
