The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (Paperback)

Thomas S. Kuhn

Thomas S. Kuhn's classic book is now available with a new index.   "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
