Reviews

"Thomas S. Kuhn didn't invent the phrase paradigm shift, but he popularized it and gave it the meaning it has today. He also triggered one when he published The Structure of Scientific Revolutions in 1962.... After Kuhn, we can no longer ignore the fact that however powerful science is, it's as flawed as the scientists who do it." -Time, All-Time 100 Best Nonfiction Books "Occasionally there emerges a book which has an influence far beyond its originally intended audience.... Thomas S. Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions... has clearly emerged as just such a work." -Ron Johnston, Times Higher Education Supplement "The book really did change 'the image of science by which we are now possessed.' Forever." -Ian Hacking, from the Introduction "Perhaps the best explanation of the process of discovery." -William Irwin Thompson, New York Times Book Review "A landmark in intellectual history which has attracted attention far beyond its own immediate field.... If causing a revolution is the hallmark of a superior paradigm, Structure has been a resounding success." -Nicholas Wade, Science "Among the most influential academic books in this century." -Choice"
