DEL CORRAL SALAZAR, Andrés. Natural selection and evolutionary epistemology in the philosophy of K. Popper. discus.filos [online]. 2016, vol.17, n.29, pp.53-64. ISSN 0124-6127.

This article reconstructs the development and the turns that the idea of Darwin's natural selection has had in the work of Popper. After doing this, I present a new interpretation of Popper on Darwinism as a change in the concept of evolution, conceived as a process that maintains the basic explanatory structure proposed by Darwin, that operates not only at the organic level but at different levels, linking his pluralistic conception of reality. Thus, I present Popperian evolutionary epistemology as a form of universal Darwinism.

Keywords : Evolutionary Epistemology; emergentism; universal Darwinism.
