Thanks to the replacement of the original English editions of several of Popper's main works by reset impressions in Routledge Classics, page references in Popper Selections (and its translations) that point to the older editions (published by Hutchinson and Routledge & Kegan Paul in the UK and in parallel in the US) are now obsolete. This list replaces these references by better references that should for the most part be invariant across editions and languages. Karl Popper: Textos Escolhidos, Rio de Janeiro: Contraponto & Editora de PUC, 2010, incorporates the adjusted references.
