Unended Quest: An Intellectual Autobiography (1976 [2002]) is a book by Karl Popper.Karl Popper (1976 [2002]). Unended Quest: An Intellectual Autobiography. Contents. London and New York: Routledge {{ISBN|0-415-28589-5}}A 2002 edition came out re-paginated with more words per page, two postscripts, and updated bibliography.Karl Popper (1976 [2002]). Unended Quest: An Intellectual Autobiography. p. vii.The work first appeared with the title "Autobiography of Karl Popper" in The Philosophy of Karl Popper (1974) from the Library of Living Philosophers series.Karl Popper (1974). "Autobiography of Karl Popper," The Philosophy of Karl Popper, Paul A. Schilpp, ed., The Library of Living Philosophers, Open Court Publishing, v. 1, pp. 2-184.The book chronicles Popper's life from the beginning, including wider implications he drew from his experiences. In chapter 1, "Omniscience and Fallibility," for example, he describes his apprenticeship to a cabinetmaker while he was a university student. His master invited him to ask anything he liked, because, with due modesty, the master claimed to know everything. From his omniscient master, Popper writes that he became a disciple of Socrates and learned more about the theory of knowledge, including how little he knew, than from his university teachers.Karl Popper (1976 [2002]). Unended Quest: An Intellectual Autobiography. p. 1.Other thematic chapter subjects include music, education, philosophical problems Popper encountered, and his differences from other philosophers, whether earlier or contemporary. These are woven into an account of events in his life and research programmes that he developed.Karl R. Popper ([1976] 2002). Unended Quest: An Intellectual Autobiography. Description and contents. For example, Chapter 24 discusses 2 of his best-known works, The Open Society and Its Enemies and The Poverty of Historicism, and the origins of 'critical rationalism' to describe the approach he espoused.
