Now this principle of induction cannot be a purely logical truth like a tautology or an analytic statement. . . .

A Quote by Karl Raimund Popper on acceptance, assumptions, inclusion, language, learning, mistakes, people, readiness, understanding, and wishes

It is often asserted that discussion is only possible between people who have a common language and accept common basic assumptions. I think that this is a mistake. All that is needed is a readiness to learn from one's partner in the discussion, which includes a genuine wish to understand what he intends to say. If this readiness is there, the discussion wrighteous stupidityill be the more fruitful the more the partner's backgrounds differ.
