Popper later applied his analysis of knowledge to theories of society and history. Hegel, and Karl Marx as offering untenable totalitarian theories that are easily falsifiable. The Open Society is often considered one of Popper's most influential books of this century. It also was responsible for the prevalent use of the term "open society.
A lively controversy ensued on the issue of which philosophers, if any, held the doctrine Popper refuted. Popper found himself embroiled in a decade of polemics, particularly with partisans of Plato. Popper was thus credited with a convincing logical refutation but one misdirected in its targets. Popper's later works Objective Knowledge and The Self and Its Brain combined his scientific theory with a theory of evolution. In the s, Popper continued to lecture, focusing mainly on questions of evolution and the role of consciousness.

When I look at what I call the gift of life, I feel a gratitude which is in tune with some religious ideas of God. However, the moment I even speak of it, I am embarrassed that I may do something wrong to God in talking about God.

While working on it we learn just enough to find it immature the moment we turn away from it" "Our knowledge can only be finite, while our ignorance must necessarily be infinite.
