Description
"A landmark in intellectual history which has attracted attention far beyond its own immediate field. . . . It is written with a combination of depth and clarity that make it an almost unbroken series of aphorisms. . . . Kuhn does not permit truth to be a criterion of scientific theories, he would presumably not claim his own theory to be true. But if causing a revolution is the hallmark of a superior paradigm, this book] has been a resounding success." Nicholas Wade, "Science""Perhaps the best explanation of the] process of discovery." William Erwin Thompson, "New York Times Book Review""Occasionally there emerges a book which has an influence far beyond its originally intended audience. . . . Thomas Kuhn's "The Structure of ""Scientific Revolutions" . . . has clearly emerged as just such a work." Ron Johnston, "Times Higher Education Supplement""Among the most influential academic books in this century." "Choice"One of "The Hundred Most Influential Books Since the Second World War," "Times Literary Supplement.
