Abstract : The back cover of its third edition says that The Structure of Scientific Revolutions is one of the 100 most influential books since the Second World War. I wonder what the other 99 were. In remarkably few pages, Kuhn assembled provocative lines of contemporary thought in history, philosophy and psychology into a coherent, seductive and unforgettable, neo-Hegelian vision of what science is and how it changes. Too seductive, in fact, possibly even for the man himself. I doubt whether anyone, including Kuhn, ever saw a pristine example of a new paradigm arising like a phoenix from the flames of its predecessor’s self-immolation. It might be time to disaggregate Kuhn’s story: I want to open up his theme of ‘different worlds’ without worrying too much about slotting it into a big master narrative of the history of science.
