The Popperian Knight, Sir Hermann Bondi, sought to incorporate his mentor's ideals of creativity, imagination purity and scepticism into British teaching - whether in the sciences or the humanities. The aim, initially at least, was to broker an understanding between the scientific profession and government paymasters. But a golden opportunity would also present itself: owing largely to his Presidency of the Association of Science Education, Bondi was to contribute to the Royal Society's Public Understanding of Science initiative - a significant platform and boost in his quest to establish Popper's ideas as the common language through which science could be understood.
