Resumen

GARCIA, Félix Miguel. Popper, el contraste de hipótesis y el método crítico. Rev Cubana Salud Pública [online]. 2003, vol.29, n.1, pp.52-60. ISSN 0864-3466.

Contrary to what is common in the appreciation of the contrast of statistical hypotheses as essentially false, and following the popperian logics of the contrast of hypotheses/scientific theories, 3 theses tried to be proved: (1) that Popper himself did not consider the contrast of hypotheses in the current technical sense, in spite of certain erroneous interpretations and and some texts of his own in which a confused vocabulary is used; (2) that the contrast of hypotheses cannot be assimilated by Popper's contrast neither in its structure nor in its objectives and consequences; in fact, what it finally pursues is to affirm a positive hypothesis, the H1, something radically antipopperian, and (3) that the popperian "critical rationalism" really hides behind its apparent common sense and antidogmatism a "general and methodological totalitarism" subtle as the democratic neototalitarism of which it is a part and of an "everything is worth for those who have it all", an ethical, scientific and political aliby for the present absolute power the pharmaceutical industry has on medical decisions
