Abstract:

Thomas Samuel Kuhn, Ph.D. (1922-1996), plausibly the leading philosopher of science of our time, maintained that science proceeds through periods of steady growth punctuated by emendational revolutions. His 1962 book, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, one of the most quoted bodies of academic work of all time, maintains that the progress of science is not linear, let alone invariant (1). Rather, the progress of science is episodic, that is, marked by alternating periods of “normal” and “revolutionary” gains.
