held accountable for his negative influence on modern Western society.

In October 1946, Austrian philosopher Karl Popper was invited to lecture at Cambridge University in England. A meeting was arranged with fellow Austrian Ludwig Wittgenstein, along with their common mentor Bertrand Russell. But the great minds clashed from the beginning, sparks flew, and Wittgenstein supposedly threatened Popper with a fireplace poker. Accounts of witnesses vary in extreme, and the authors here attempt to determine the facts.
