Abstract: The article attempts to reveal Popper’s views on philosophical culture. It is emphasized that according to Popper philosophy is a rational endeavour which came about with the first Milesian school of Thales and his pupils when they invented the critical discussion as a method to develop their theories. Therefore rationality seems to be the most essential attribute of philosophical culture apprehended as a specific attitude of mind and ability to reflect upon the world and man’s place in it. The consequences of adopting Popper’s critical rationalism are discussed with an emphasis on toleration and intellectual responsibility.
Key words: Popper, rationality, criticism, philosophical culture, Thales, Benda

order should be perceived as a common good, by what means and in what way should social
order be maintained in society, etc. The problem of order in society is a fundamental political
one. Social action aimed at establishing or changing social order is political in nature.
Political action is public and its agents are institutional to some degree or other, whether
they be political parties, civic movements or groups of people claiming to express certain
values and/or interests. Political action is socio-normative not only because it is aimed at the creation, preservation or change of norms valid for society, but likewise because this action is itself dependent on norms and values.
Key words: values, socialization, social order, political culture, ideal type
