Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

There's a "Frank & Ernest" comic strip showing a chick breaking out of its shell, looking around, and saying, "Oh, wow! Paradigm shift!" Blame the late Thomas Kuhn. Few indeed are the philosophers or historians influential enough to make it into the funny papers, but Kuhn is one.

The Structure of Scientific Revolutions is indeed a paradigmatic work in the history of science. Kuhn's use of terms such as "paradigm shift" and "normal science," his ideas of how scientists move from disdain through doubt to acceptance of a new theory, his stress on social and psychological factors in science--all have had profound effects on historians, scientists, philosophers, critics, writers, business gurus, and even the cartoonist in the street.

Some scientists (such as Steven Weinberg and Ernst Mayr) are profoundly irritated by Kuhn, especially by the doubts he casts--or the way his work has been used to cast doubt--on the idea of scientific progress. Yet it has been said that the acceptance of plate tectonics in the 1960s, for instance, was sped by geologists' reluctance to be on the downside of a paradigm shift. Even Weinberg has said that "Structure has had a wider influence than any other book on the history of science." As one of Kuhn's obituaries noted, "We all live in a post-Kuhnian age." --Mary Ellen Curtin

Synopsis

"The Structure of Scientific Revolutions" is one of the most influential, and certainly one of the most cited, books of the 20th century. Kuhn persuasively undercuts the notion of the progressive growth of scientific knowledge, arguing that what is thought of as "science" at one period of history will be seen as "non-science" in a later period. Kuhn also argues that seemingly irrational causes provoke the transition ("paradigm shift") from one scientific era to the next. Certainly provocative, this book is also highly readable and convincingly argued.

Format: Taschenbuch
In general, this book uses many examples to illustrate the concept of "paradigm" and to support his argument or personal attitudes towards the scientific community and educational system (or textbook addiction in my words). In this book, Kuhn raises a critical question that is how development through revolutions can be compatible with the apparently unique character of scientific progress.
Though considerable examples have been illustrated to explain the importance of paradigm on normal science, there is no clear and specific definition on "paradigm." In contrast, the concept of "paradigm" varies from one chapter to another. Examples like shared paradigms (p.11) and community's paradigms (p.43). When reading this book, we must pay attention on what situations Kuhn refers to.
Paradigm itself includes the concepts (elements or substances) of rules, laws, models and the like. It also takes into account of social psychology, metaphysics, and the other disciplines. The occurrence of paradigm testing is due to the failure to solve crisis. And the testing occurs only when there is competition between two rival paradigms. The transformation process is not simply bounded by what Popper's falsification (p.146) or probability verification (p.145). However, in Kuhn's point of view, paradigms and theories are not merely man-made interpretations of given data. A distinction should be made between theories and facts. Scientists assume theories; they know facts to be true, within acceptable limits of confidence. As time advances, they replace one theory with another, arguably a better one. What should be beyond argument is that there is an accretion of known facts.

Format: Taschenbuch
The negative reviews of this classic that are posted here unfortunately come from people who have missed the core proposition of Kuhn's book, that science is not the pricess of discovery of true facts about the natural world, that instead it is the process of the social construction of facts about the natural world, facts whose relevance changes as science goes through successive revolutions. The insight he provides on the way that science rewrites history from a present-centered perspective to make science appear progressive have been missed by these readers.
The cynical reader may need more help before she is convinced that science may not be about approaching truth about the natural world. A couple of other books that may help the inquisitive reader to gain more insight into this fascinating subject are: Feyerabend, Against Method; Kleck, Genesis and Development of a Scientific Fact; Harry Collins, The Golem; and Harry Collines, Changing Order.
Enjoy the exploration!

Format: Taschenbuch
Kuhn, especially in The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, has had a massive impact on the philosophy of science. His historicist approach has definitely brought to attention the sorts of unexamined beliefs inherent in the development of science. His emphasis on historical contingency places him squarely in opposition to Popper regarding how science makes progress. I think this appreciation of contingency is the useful part of Kuhn's work, but that the instruments he uses - the binary opposition between "normal" and "revolutionary" science are too crude. There seem to be plenty of occasions in science where beliefs - even fundamental ones - are examined and re-worked, without an actual paradigm shift - occasions which seem more than the tinkering associated with normal science and less than the Gestalt shift of revolution.
Also, his doctrine of the incommensurability of paradigms seems problematic - how does a new paradigm arise? It seems to preclude the very real discourse which occurs within a discipline during a time of crisis or revoultion - people do seem able to communicate across paradigms. Some of his paradigmatic paradigm shifts are a little crudely drawn, too - the often cited relativity vs Newton case was actually a good deal more "organic" in its genesis than Kuhn acknowledge, for example. Kuhn, like Foucault in The Order of Things, is keen to be a historicist, but seems to play a little fast and loose with the history in order to do so.
A top book, but it should be read in conjunction with some Popper or Lauden to give some balance.

If you ever wanted to know why scientific discovery proceeds in slow motion and has difficulties in overturning established ideas - read Kuhn. His emphasis on the psychological and social side of science makes the difference to other explanations of scientific progress.

There will still be Einsteins and Plancks revolutionising the way we think about the world, but they remain the exceptions.
