The purpose of this study is especially useful for ongoing discussion of methods in the field of social sciences to give point of view on R. Karl Popper perspective. We can say that Popper’s views are shaped by his critique of common and generally accepted method conception. ?n this contex, we see that Popper’s critical point of view is primarily directed to the perspective of Aristotelian logic which is the basic of discussions on the contemporary method problem. Popper argues that Aristotelistism is an unscientific effort to establish an identity link between physical reality and the reasoned propositions of syllogism. According to Popper, no argument of science, in particular social science, can assume that it can reach an empirical capacity that represents the empirical world. The fact that any hypothesis that has been verified at certain times and condotions(repetition is unimportant) does not give an absolute representation power to the hypothesis. Popper’s main argument for this problem is that the condition of a theory to become scientific is that it must be open to falsification by a possible phenomenon; in other word it must contain a potential falsifiability.
