  • Leszek Nowak
Part of the Synthese Library book series (SYLI, volume 139)


The aim of the present chapter is to compare the Marxian idea of science with hypotheticism. In particular, we want to find out whether the Marxian conception of abstraction interpreted as idealization is included or may be included into the conceptual framework of the Popperian theory of science.
