Open Society

Discipline: Political Science

Theory of government and social order of the Austrian philosopher Karl Popper (1902-1994).

An open society, as opposed to a planned or goal-directed society, is one in which governments have no ultimate aims, and hence one where people enjoy the maximum freedom to experiment and innovate.
