Abstract

In this article will be discussed the famous Popperian terms of 'empirical content' and 'falsifiability' or 'refutability'. They are all synonymous with another and are all fundamental principles, not for Popper's philosophy exclusively, but for Lakatos - and for Sneed's rational reconstruction of the ideas of Kuhn's book 'The Structure of Scientific Revolutions'. The main intention of the present article is to analyse the terms mentioned above under the semiotical point of view. So we can, for example, understand 'empirical content' as syntactically or semantically or as pragmatically. Only the pragmatically understanding is the correct one, for which will be give reasons in detail.
