Ensayo que ha ejercido una decisiva influencia sobre l. a. teoría social y política contemporánea, los angeles miseria del Historicismo proviene de un punto de partida tan erróneo en su planteamiento como falaz en sus implicaciones: los angeles certeza de que l. a. evolución humana puede ser objerto de predicción mediante el descubrimiento de los ritos, modelos, leyes o tendencias que supuestamente gobernarían su curso. Ahora bien, como argumenta Karl. R. Popper en esta audaz crtícia, dado que l. a. historia humana está influida de forma an important por el crecimiento del conocimiento, y dado también que no cabe anticipar hoy lo que sabremos mañana, l. a. pretensión de predecir el futuro carece de todo fundamento científico y pertenece al campo de l. a. pura superstición
