Summary
Thomas S. Kuhn's classic book is now available with a new index
Summary
The now classic 1962 philosophy of science study to which can be traced responsibility for the widespread concept of paradigm shift, but not the blame for its inane appearance at cocktail parties of the past couple of decades. Among other points, Kuhn argues that science is not a search for better understanding of reality but a scramble by scientists for paying jobs
