‘If in this book harsh words are spoken about some of the greatest among the intellectual leaders of mankind, my motive is not, I hope, to belittle them. It springs rather from my conviction that, if our civilization is to survive, we must break with the habit of deference to great men.’ - Karl Popper, from the Preface Written in political exile during the Second World War and first published in two volumes in 1945, Karl Popper’s The Open Society and Its Enemies is one of the most influential books of all time. Hailed by Bertrand Russell as a ‘vigorous and profound defence of democracy’, its now legendary attack on the philosophies of Plato, Hegel and Marx exposed the dangers inherent in centrally planned political systems and through underground editions become an inspiration to lovers of freedom living under communism in Eastern Europe. Popper’s highly accessible style, his erudite and lucid explanations of the thoughts of great philosophers and the recent resurgence of totalitarian regimes around the world are just three of the reasons for the enduring popularity of The Open Society and Its Enemies and why it demands to be read today and in years to come.

One of the most important books of the twentieth century, Karl Popper's The Open Society and Its Enemies is an uncompromising defense of liberal democracy and a powerful attack on the intellectual origins of totalitarianism. Popper was born in 1902 to a Viennese family of Jewish origin. He taught in Austria until 1937, when he emigrated to New Zealand in anticipation of the Nazi annexation of Austria the following year, and he settled in England in 1949. Before the annexation, Popper had written mainly about the philosophy of science, but from 1938 until the end of the Second World War he focused his energies on political philosophy, seeking to diagnose the intellectual origins of German and Soviet totalitarianism. The Open Society and Its Enemies was the result. An immediate sensation when it was first published in two volumes in 1945, Popper's monumental achievement has attained legendary status on both the Left and Right and is credited with inspiring anticommunist dissidents during the Cold War. Arguing that the spirit of free, critical inquiry that governs scientific investigation should also apply to politics, Popper traces the roots of an opposite, authoritarian tendency to a tradition represented by Plato, Marx, and Hegel. In a substantial new introduction written for this edition, acclaimed political philosopher Alan Ryan puts Popper's landmark work in biographical, intellectual, and historical context. Also included is a personal essay by eminent art historian E. H. Gombrich, in which he recounts the story of the book's eventual publication despite numerous rejections and wartime deprivations.

Written in political exile in New Zealand during the Second World War and published in two volumes in 1945, The Open Society and its Enemies was hailed by Bertrand Russell as a 'vigorous and profound defence of democracy'. This legendary attack on the philosophies of Plato, Hegel and Marx prophesied the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe and exposed the fatal flaws of socially engineered political systems. It remains highly readable, erudite and lucid and as essential reading today as on publication in 1945. It is available here in a special centenary single-volume edition.

English summary: In this work, Karl Popper mainly deals with and criticizes the anti-naturalistic and pro-naturalistic ideas expressed in historicism, which is the theory that there are laws of development in history and that human beings are able to discover them. However the book is not restricted to this criticism alone. It is the application of Karl Popper's theory of science to politics, sociology and history and the presentation of new, surprising solutions for problems in these areas. Anyone interested in political, sociological and historical questions will be able to find ideas and solutions which are as relevant today as they were 50 years ago in this book. It is a standard work for the application of scientific theories to concrete practice. German description: Karl Popper behandelt und kritisiert in diesem Buch zwar vordergrundig den Historizismus, das heisst die Lehre, dass es Gesetze der historischen Entwicklung gibt, in seinen antinaturalistischen und pronaturalistischen Auspragungen. Im Grunde ist das Buch aber viel breiter angelegt. Es ist die erkenntnisfordernde Ubertragung von Poppers Wissenschaftslehre auf Politik, Soziologie und Geschichte, fur deren Problemstellungen es neue uberraschende Losungen aufzeigt. Karl Popper diskutiert hier die Vor- und Nachteile praxisorientierter Wissenschaft. Er behandelt nicht nur Fragen, ob die Methoden der Naturwissenschaften auf die Sozialwissenschaften ubertragen werden konnen, sondern ebenso Fragen, auf welche Weise eine demokratische Gesellschaft organisiert sein soll, damit die Politik nicht zu grossen Schaden anrichtet und ein Hochstmass an Freiheit garantiert ist.Jeder, der an politischen, soziologischen und historischen Fragestellungen interessiert ist, wird deshalb aus diesem Buch Anregungen und Losungsvorschlage entnehmen konnen, die heute noch so aktuell sind wie vor 50 Jahren. Das Buch ist ein Standardwerk der Anwendung wissenschaftlicher Theorien auf die konkrete Praxis.... Mit Nachdruck richtet Popper seine differenzierte und sorgfaltig aufgebaute Kritik vor allem gegen die eganzheitliche Betrachtungsweise' der sozialen Welt (eHolismus'), gegen das eintuitive' Verstehen und Deuten geschichtlicher Veranderungen und gegen trugerische historische oder naturwissenschaftlich verbramte Analogieschlusse bei den theoretischen und spekulativen Bemuhungen um geschichtliche eGrossprognosen'. ...Ernst Weymar in Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung Nr. 246 vom 22.10.1966
