Read full description of the books:
This is a great series, especially for those who don't have the time (or desire) to read the really big and complicated books on these philosophers. These are also a good mix of philosophical ideas and biographical context.
Popper was kind of brilliantly insane. His push for "falsification" with regards to the scientific method was helpful in some ways, and not so helpful in others. He was also one of the members of the so-called Vienna Circle, so there are some issues that need to be looked out for there. He was not necessarily opposed to metaphysics and theology, either. But he did come down pretty hard on those scientists who try and push any form of "scientism." Basically, Popper wanted to raise (not lower) the bar for what could be considered as scientific proof. He wanted to make it harder for scientists to make totalizing claims about the world. I think that in spite of his own humanistic presuppositions, he ended up making the chairs of humanistic science much harder for certain scientific theories, like Darwinian evolution, to sit down in, let alone be comfortable in.
