ORTEGA CARO, Cristian. Theoretical change in the boundaries of critical rationalism: commensurability and progressive rebuttal in Social Sciences. Alpha [online]. 2011, n.32, pp. 235-254. ISSN 0718-2201.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22012011000100017.

Under the inspiration of Karl Popper's epistemology, we introduce a reflection that brings awereness of how social theories are subject to a particular process of epistemic change. For this reason a substantive model --progressive, historical and intrepetative-- is proposed to reveal the empirical space of the theories, an invitation to object the development of the sciences (in particular the social sciences) that contains, in addition and indirectly, a critical view to the historical current of the epistemology; all this from our proposal: the Model of Progressive Refutation.

Palavras-chave : Critical rationalism; theoretical change; epistemic change; falsability; progressive refutation.
