Click here to show/hide summary
This paper examines how Thomas Kuhn's "The Structure of Scientific Revolutions" is certainly the most influential book in terms of the way modern philosophy of science is conducted. It discusses how Kuhn's theory of the process of scientific revolutions stems from his belief that scientific progress is not made in some tidy rational way, but, in fact, proceeds in a way that is based on all sorts of nonrational systems. In comparison, it looks at how Michael Oakeshott's "Experience and its Modes" doesn't discuss the history of scientific revolutions, per se, and there are a great number of resonances between Oakeshott's and Kuhn's respective projects. It shows how Oakeshott's work is generally more holistic in its overall reach as it attempts to discuss the limits and nature of human epistemology on a grand scale and how his work is relevant to Kuhn's because he does consider science as one of these modes of epistemology.
From the Paper
"Thus, the radical argument here in Kuhn's idea is that science is not a rational process of gradual adding to already known information as theorists often claim. Rather, it is a turbulent dynamic system, in which ways of knowing are constantly shifting in dynamic ways that attack the basic epistemology of science. Anyone who doubts that basic epistemological issues are at the heart of many scientific debates rather than just accumulating new knowledge would do well to look at Quantum Mechanic for example, which, unlike most of the rest of science, claims that you cannot necessarily predict the outcome of a specific event, only the probability of a specific outcome."

Thomas Kuhn Thomas Samuel Kuhn was born on July 18, 1922, in Cincinnati, Ohio, United States. He received a Ph. D. in physics from Harvard University in 1949 and remained there as an assistant professor of general education and history of science. In 1956, Kuhn accepted a post at the University of CaliforniaBerkeley, where in 1961 he became a full professor of history of science. In 1964, he was named M. Taylor Pyne Professor of Philosophy and History of Science at Princeton University. In 1979 he returned to Boston, this time to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as professor of philosophy and history of science. In 1983 he was named Laurence S. Rockefeller Professor of Philosophy at MIT. Of the five books and countless articles he published, Kuhn's most renown work is The Structure of Scientific Revolutions , which he wrote while a graduate student in theoretical physics at Harvard. Initially published as a monograph in the International Encyclopedia of Unified Science, it was published in book form by the University of Chicago Press in 1962. It has sold some one million copies in 16 languages and is required reading in courses dealing with education, history, psychology, research, and, of course, history and philosophy of science. Structure has also generated a good deal of controversy, and many of Kuhn's ideas have been powerfully challenged (see Weinberg link below).

1. Life and Career
Thomas Kuhn's academic life started in physics. He then switched to history of science, and as his career developed he moved over to philosophy of science, although retaining a strong interest in the history of physics. In 1943, he graduated from Harvard summa cum laude . Thereafter he spent the remainder of the war years in research related to radar at Harvard and then in Europe. He gained his master's degree in physics in 1946, and his doctorate in 1949, also in physics (concerning an application of quantum mechanics to solid state physics). At this time, and until 1956, Kuhn taught a class in science for undergraduates in the humanities, as part of the General Education in Science curriculum, developed by James B. Conant, the President of Harvard. This course was centred around historical case studies, and this was Kuhn's first opportunity to study historical scientific texts in detail. His initial bewilderment on reading the scientific work of Aristotle was a formative experience, followed as it was by a more or less sudden ability to understand Aristotle properly, undistorted by knowledge of subsequent science. This led Kuhn to concentrate on history of science and in due course he was appointed to an assistant professorship in general education and the history of science. During this period his work focussed on eighteenth century matter theory and the early history of thermodynamics. Kuhn then turned to the history of astronomy, and in 1957 he published his first book

Thomas S. Kuhn
Professor Emeritus Thomas S. Kuhn, the internationally known historian of science and philosopher, died Monday, June 17, at his home in Cambridge. He had been ill for the last two years with cancer of the bronchial tubes and throat. He was 73. Kuhn was the author of The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (1962), a seminal work on the nature of scientific change and was widely celebrated as a central figure in contemporary thought about how the scientific process evolves. The New York Times credited Kuhn's book with popularizing the word "paradigm"because it appeared so frequently. Vice President Al Gore, in his June 7 commencement address, used Kuhn's theories to frame his argument about the relationship beween science and technology. "Well-established theories collapse under the weight of new facts and observations which cannot be explained, and then accumulate to the point where the once useful theory is clearly obsolete," he said. As new facts continue to accumulate, a new, more accurate paradigm must replace the old one. More than one million copies of Kuhn's 1962 book have been printed. It has been translated into more than a dozen languages and is still a basic text in the study of the history of science and technology.

The Work of Thomas S. Kuhn
Fish nor fowl, essay nor outline, this is a starting point for the afternoon session of the sixtieth meeting of the Northern California History of Astronomy Luncheon and Discussion Association, NCHALADA LX. Don't just bring munchies, bring opinions, facts, books. Prepare to discuss, I have no intention of delivering a monologue.
"Physical concepts are free creations of the human mind and are not, however it may seem, uniquely determined by the external world. In our endeavor to understand reality we are somewhat like a man trying to understand the mechanism of a closed watch. He sees the face and the moving hands, even hears its ticking, but he has no way of opening the case. If he is ingenious he may form some picture of a mechanism which could be responsible for all the things he observes, but he may never be quite sure his picture is the only one which could explain his observations. He will never be able to compare his picture with the real mechanism and cannot even imagine the possibility or the meaning of such a comparison. But he certainly believes that, as his knowledge increases, his picture of reality will become simpler and simpler and will explain a wider and wider range of his sensuous impressions. He may also believe in the existence of the ideal limit of knowledge and that it is approached by the human mind. He may call this ideal limit the objective truth."

18. Thomas S. Kuhn, The Culture War And The Idea Of Secession
I believe the work of the late historian and philosopher of science thomas S. kuhn can shed some light on this. For those who aren’t familiar with his name,
Thomas S. Kuhn, the Culture War and the Idea of Secession
by Steven Yates I. It wasn’t always like this. Our Declaration of Independence was, after all, a declaration of secession from the British Empire. "When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal status to which the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to that separation." This couldn’t be clearer. Our country resulted from a secession. Moreover, the new republic, once established, was hardly as stable, initially, as today’s history books suggest. Secession was threatened a number of times during its first 70 years by states or groups of states both Northern and Southern on various pretexts. Of course, the War for Southern Independence changed everything. Not only was secession never again threatened, but those pre-War threats were purged from the history books. They can be found today only in independently published and distributed works such as that of the Kennedy brothers’ The South Was Right II.

Translate this page Perfil biográfico del pensador. En Biografias y vidas.
Inicio Buscador Las figuras clave de la historia Reportajes Los protagonistas de la actualidad Thomas S. Kuhn (Cincinnati, EE UU, 1922-Cambridge, id., 1997) Filósofo de la ciencia estadounidense. Fue profesor en la Universidad de Princeton y desde 1979 en Massachusets. Influido por el pensamiento de historiadores como Koyré o filósofos como Quine, consideró que el estudio histórico es necesario para entender cómo se han desarrollado las teorías científicas y para conocer por qué en ciertos momentos unas teorías han sido aceptadas antes que otras. Para Kuhn, la ciencia es elaborada en el seno de una comunidad científica y no individualmente; la comunidad sirve de base a los desarrollos científicos mediante la elaboración o asunción de un paradigma del cual se derivan reglas que fijan las regularidades. El paradigma es un contexto de validez respecto al cual la investigación procede en una forma similar a la solución de acertijos. Cuando un paradigma ha sido establecido por el colectivo de científicos al que sirve, los fundamentos del mismo nunca son puestos en duda. Sin embargo, y dado que los paradigmas pierden validez históricamente, Kuhn explica que cuando se multiplican las anomalías (cuando son más los casos en que no se da lo previsto que aquellos en los que sí se cumple) hasta el punto de que ya no se las puede obviar, el paradigma queda inservible de modo que se hace necesaria una nueva forma de validez. La naturaleza del conocimiento científico tal y como queda descrito por Kuhn hace comprensible el hecho de que en determinados momentos históricos coexistan dos o más paradigmas.
