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

"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.

Von Ein Kunde am 13. September 1999
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.

As a scientist and someone who has always loved this book, I wanted to try and clarify Kuhn's message for Chris.
Kuhn is NOT arguing that anything that silly socio-psychobabble that all science is colored by personal perspective, and therefore faulty. What Kuhn doing is making the essential connection between the immutable fact and the people discovering and interpreting it. Scientists collect facts and build from them an idea of how things work as a whole. This is what he calls a paradigm. It thoroughly describes our reality as we have thus far been able to describe it. BUT: when a fact is discovered that does not fit this paradigm, the reality itself is discarded, and after a bit of chaos, a new paradigm is installed. Thus, science uses fact to produce a way of interpreting the world that more and more closely approximates reality. Point is, until anyone proves otherwise, the paradigm in place is the one that works. Science is the continual establishment and discarding of these paradigms as fact permits.
While this seems simple now, when it came out it was a revolutionary contradiction to the staid and now seemingly antiquated belief that science is a clean, steady progression to a full understanding of all phenomena. Truth is that, as Kuhn so elegantly illustrates, it moves by jumps and starts, with periodic changes in the equilibrium of things.

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!

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.
