Primarily, Popper is considered to be a philosopher of science, who is merely interested with acquiring and working of knowledge. He thought that science is a fundamental study and if someone wants to study the growth of knowledge, he/she should understand the scientific knowledge firstly. He was very much impressed by Einstein’s theory of relativity which, in all of a sudden, changed the whole concept of science and smoothly disregarded the three centuries rural Newtonian physics. When Einstein claimed that if his theory would fail experimentally, he himself will adapt the classical concepts as it is, then Popper got struck with the idea that every scientific approach, philosophy or theory should be proved experimentally. So he introduced the idea of critical rationalism that every predicted theory should be put critically to test, whether to prove itself to be true or get falsified. Regardless of the positive outcomes of a specific theory the negative outcomes turn out to outweigh them and thus regard the theory as ‘false’ or invalid. He was also of the view that science is not imaginative or abstract; it is actually human thinking which constructs everything and should be tested logically (McFARLANE. 1990).
Popper’s approach of falsification leads him to set his own criterion of the demarcation as laid down in science. According to him, any theory or hypothesis can be termed as scientific if it is falsifiable, i.e. If it can be proved by an experiment that the theory is false, then it would be a scientific theory. All scientific approaches are logical and can be
