    Do You Find This Circumlocution Insane?

    Popper's falsificationism, or critical rationalism--his theory of conjectures and refutations--is rightly celebrated for its repudiation of induction and for its illumination of the role of imagination in scientific work.
    I find it so hard-to-understand. And am wondering how do native English speakers feel about it?

    Re: Do You Find This Circumlocution Insane?

    Why use words of one syllable when there are beautiful words of six or more, even if they are incomprehensible?

    It is a very over-written piece of text.
