    "Naraniecki reconfigures Popper’s place in twentieth-century philosophy. Focusing on the Kantian problem of transcendental criticism, he tracks Popper’s gradual liberation from the constraints of falsificationist philosophy and increasing legitimization of the transcendental. Against the conventional focus on the Vienna Circle, Naraniecki emphasizes the role of the broader Central European context informing his early philosophy. He finds Popper’s view of language surprisingly similar to that of the late Wittgenstein, and he suggests that Buehler’s evolutionary epistemology enabled Popper to avoid Wittgenstein’s linguistic impasse. Naraniecki further argues that Popper’s late metaphysics (World 3) shows Hegelian and Platonic features that are crucial to an understanding of his mature thought. His arguments are novel and will evoke a lively debate among Popper scholars, and beyond." - Professor Malachi Hacohen, Director of the European Studies Center at Duke University Over the last few years there has been a resurgent interest in various scientific disciplines in Popper’s arguments. To gain a greater appreciation of Popper’s scientific arguments, they need to be viewed in relation to his broader philosophy and where this stands within the history of ideas. This book aims to take seriously those aspects of Popper’s writings that have received less attention and wherein he advanced metaphysical, speculative, mystical-poetic, aesthetic and Platonic arguments. Such arguments are crucial for an appreciation of his scientific and political writings. I argue that Popper, much like Wittgenstein previously has been misconstrued as an Anglo-analytic philosopher. This book provides an interpretation of Popper’s mature philosophy within his Central-European intellectual context. The aim of which is to open up a fruitful line of investigation into Popper’s thought that I hope would continue over the coming years.
