5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must-Read Book
"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...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Incomplete and misleading
Kuhn's book is eminently popular and with good reason - it surveys a large number of important historical developments in science.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Unscientific nonsense, 20. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Structure of Scientific Revolutions (Taschenbuch)
If there's an answer (and there may not be an answer) then Kuhn hasn't found it. Postmodernistists who do not know science but who like to 'criticize' science often cite this book. Have they understood it? I haven't, because the argument makes no sense. I do understand physics, which does. Kuhn was not really a working scientist, and cannot describe what scientists do (see, however, the beautiful essays on creativity by Einstein, Hadamaard, and Poincare). Consider the following: a successlul speculator cannot even explain sensibly how he makes money (witness Soros's book "The Alchemy of Finance"). How can a nonscientist, or even a scientist, be expected account 'systematically' for the wonder of scientific discovery?
