Though I had played for some years with the idea of publishing a volume of selected papers, the project might never have become.
Second, Kuhn's theory ignores the innumerable scientific hypotheses, theories, and advances that displaced earlier explanations with very little or no resistance. Third, Kuhn misinterprets the initial resistance to Einstein's Theory of Relativity. The real problem with the acceptance of this theory is that when it made its debut (especially in the case of Einstein's General Theory), few physicists themselves could even understand the mathematics and physics involved. 2017-11-18 Ethics and the A Priori: Selected Essays on Moral Psychology and Meta-Ethics (Cambridge Studies in Philosophy). 2017-02-18 Preparation of Catalysts VI: Scientific Bases for the Preparation of Catalysts (Studies in Surface Science and Catalysis). 2009-09-14The Essential Santayana: Selected Writings (American Philosophy).
Kuhn has the unmistakable address of a man, who, so far from wanting to score points, is anxious above all else to get at the truth of matters. -Sir Peter Medawar, Nature. Categories: Education.

The Essential Tension book. In 1962, Kuhn published The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, which depicted the development of the basic natural sciences in an innovative way. According to Kuhn, the sciences do not uniformly progress strictly by scientific method. Rather, there are two fundamentally different phases of scientific development in the sciences. In the first phase, scientists work within a paradigm (set of accepted beliefs). When the foundation of the paradigm weakens and new theories and scientific methods begin to replace it, the next phase of scientific discovery takes place. Kuhn's theory has triggered widespread, controversial discussion across many scientific disciplines. Books by Thomas S. Kuhn
Thomas S. Kuhn (1922-1996) was professor emeritus of philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His many books include The Structure of Scientific Revolutions and Black-Body Theory and the Quantum Discontinuity, 1894-1912, both published by the University of Chicago Press. Almost all of these articles consist in pretty straightforward elaboration and extrapolation of the ideas in Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolutions. No fundamentally new ideas are introduced (although there are some trivial adjustments in terminology, which people have made too much fuss about).

The modification of scientific innovations is particularly important in light of another, closely related observation. For a novel scientific idea to be adopted, it must overcome what Kuhn (1977bKuhn ( [1959) has described as an "essential tension.
