“Written in political exile during the Second World War and first published in two volumes in 1945, Karl Popper’s The Open Society and Its Enemies is one of the most influential books of all time. Hailed by Bertrand Russell as a ‘vigorous and profound defence of democracy’, its attack on the philosophies of Plato, Hegel and Marx exposed the dangers inherent in centrally planned political systems and through underground editions become an inspiration to lovers of freedom living under communism in Eastern Europe.”

First edition
Publisher George Routledge & Sons, London, 1945
2 Volumes: I. The Spell of Plato; II. The High Tide of Prophecy: Hegel, Marx, and the Aftermath
