English abstract: The topic of this paper is an attempt to combine two, seemingly very divergent points of view: represented by widely recognized as the postmodernist Zygmunt Bauman and by Karl Popper, who is known as a critical rationalist and a scientist. I’m going to defend the thesis that despite the fact that these thinkers represent so radically different philosophical traditions, one can identify a far-reaching similarity between Bauman’s concept of liquid modernity and Popper’s model of an open society.
Keywords: liquid modernity, Zygmunt Bauman, open society, Karl Popper
