Final Comments and Perspectives

  • Constantino Tsallis

According to the deep epistemological observations of Karl Raimund Popper, a scientific theory cannot be considered as such if it is not capable of providing falsifiable predictions. This is to say predictions that can in principle be checked to be true or false. And a successful theory is of course that one which accumulates predictions that have been verified to be correct, and whose basic hypothesis has not been proved to be violated within the restricted domain of conditions for which the theory is thought to be applicable.
