  • ASIN: The Structure of Scientific Revolutions is indeed a paradigmatic work in the history of science. Kuhn's use of terms such as "paradigm shift" and "normal science," his ideas of how scientists move from disdain through doubt to acceptance of a new theory, his stress on social and psychological factors in scienceall have had profound effects on historians, scientists, philosophers, critics, writers, business gurus, and even the cartoonist in the street. Some scientists (such as Steven Weinberg and Ernst Mayr) are profoundly irritated by Kuhn, especially by the doubts he castsor the way his work has been used to cast doubton the idea of scientific progress. Yet it has been said that the acceptance of plate tectonics in the 1960s, for instance, was sped by geologists' reluctance to be on the downside of a paradigm shift. Even Weinberg has said that "Structure has had a wider influence than any other book on the history of science." As one of Kuhn's obituaries noted, "We all live in a post-Kuhnian age."

    Inicio Buscador Las figuras clave de la historia Reportajes Los protagonistas de la actualidad Thomas S. Kuhn (Cincinnati, 1922 - Cambridge, 1997) Filsofo de la ciencia estadounidense. Fue profesor en la Universidad de Princeton y desde 1979 en Massachusets. Influido por el pensamiento de historiadores como Koyr o filsofos como Quine, consider que el estudio histrico es necesario para entender cmo se han desarrollado las teoras cientficas y para conocer por qu en ciertos momentos unas teoras han sido aceptadas antes que otras. Para Kuhn, la ciencia es elaborada en el seno de una comunidad cientfica y no individualmente; la comunidad sirve de base a los desarrollos cientficos mediante la elaboracin o asuncin de un paradigma del cual se derivan reglas que fijan las regularidades. El paradigma es un contexto de validez respecto al cual la investigacin procede en una forma similar a la solucin de acertijos. Cuando un paradigma ha sido establecido por el colectivo de cientficos al que sirve, los fundamentos del mismo nunca son puestos en duda. Sin embargo, y dado que los paradigmas pierden validez histricamente, Kuhn explica que cuando se multiplican las anomalas (cuando son ms los casos en que no se da lo previsto que aquellos en los que s 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 cientfico tal y como queda descrito por Kuhn hace comprensible el hecho de que en determinados momentos histricos coexistan dos o ms paradigmas.

    First published Fri Aug 13, 2004 The Structure of Scientific Revolutions
    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

Luego de dejar el puesto, Kuhn dio clases en la Universidad de California, Berkeley hasta , en la Universidad de Princeton hasta y en el Instituto Tecnológico de Massachusetts hasta Su pensamiento es deudor de las reflexiones de Alexandre Koyré Jean Piaget Benjamin Lee Whorf Willard Van Orman Quine y, muy especialmente, de Ludwik Fleck . Kuhn, además tenía una fuerte oposición a Karl Popper . Por su condición de historiador de la ciencia se ha interesado profundamente en el problema del cambio científico. Según Kuhn, éste es de carácter revolucionario, la ciencia no progresa por simple acumulación de conocimientos; las revoluciones científicas son momentos de desarrollo no acumulativo en los que un viejo paradigma es sustituido por otro distinto e incompatible con él. Su obra La estructura de las revoluciones científicas (1962) y el concepto de paradigma que introduce han supuesto un replanteamiento y crítica de la filosofía de la ciencia desarrollada hasta entonces ( Carnap Hempel ), al mostrar que no es suficiente para la caracterización de la ciencia la exclusiva atención al contexto de justificación, y la imposibilidad de un lenguaje observacional neutro. Procura esclarecer conceptos, corregir malentendidos y, en suma, demostrar la extraordinaria complejidad del mecanismo del progreso científico, cuando se examina sin ideas preconcebidas. El término paradigma designa todos los compromisos compartidos por una comunidad de científicos. Por un lado, los teóricos, ontológicos, y de creencias y, por otro, los que hacen referencia a la aplicación de la teoría y a los modelos de soluciones de problemas. Los paradigmas son, por tanto, algo más que un conjunto de axiomas (para aclarar su noción de paradigma Kuhn invoca a la noción wittgensteiniana de juego). Tuvo algunas diferencias con

    Kuhn begins by formulating some assumptions that lay the foundation for subsequent discussion and by briefly outlining the key contentions of the book.
  • A scientific community cannot practice its trade without some set of received beliefs (p. 4). These beliefs form the foundation of the "educational initiation that prepares and licenses the student for professional practice" (5). The nature of the "rigorous and rigid" preparation helps ensure that the received beliefs exert a "deep hold" on the student's mind. Normal science To this end, "normal science often suppresses fundamental novelties because they are necessarily subversive of its basic commitments" (5). Research is "a strenuous and devoted attempt to force nature into the conceptual boxes supplied by professional education" (5). A shift in professional commitments to shared assumptions takes place when an anomaly "subverts the existing tradition of scientific practice" (6). These shifts are what Kuhn describes as

    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.

    18. Thomas Kuhn
    Thomas Kuhn
    Tim Healy Santa Clara University The first edition of Thomas Kuhn's "The Structure of Scientific Revolutions" appeared just over 30 years ago, in 1962. His vision has revolutionized the way we think about science, and has given us as well a new way to look at change in all of life. I find Kuhn's image of a paradigm to be very useful in my understanding of myself, and of the changes that take place in all of life, scientific, social, religious, everything. Some people may not like to carry over the analogy into non-scientific aspects of our life, and that is fine. If the concept is not useful, then of course you should not use it. I speak only for myself when I say that it has helped me understand many things. Whether in the sciences, or in other aspects of our lives, paradigm shifts seem to have some common characteristics. 1, Paradigm shifts are a necessary part of life. Things do change, and we have to adjust to that change. 2. Paradigm shifts can be bad. Society needs quite a bit of stability, so that it can depend on its view of the world. Constant shifts in major elements of our paradigm would make our lives very difficult. 3. Paradigm shifts often come from the young. Older people have more to conserve. They have more of investment, financial and psychological, in their paradigm. Winston Churchill said that any man who is not a liberal at 20 has no heart, and any man who is not a conservative at 40 has no mind.

    Thomas Kuhn: Paradigms Die Hard

    While this article attempts to explicate Kuhn's ideas to readers who may be unfamiliar with them, it does not analyze the extent to which these ideas were truly original. Undoubtedly, Kuhn's essay depended somewhat on contemporary thinkers like Stephen Toulmin, N.R. Hanson, and Paul Feyeraband; previous scholars like Emile Meyerson, Alexandre Koyre, Kate Loewenberg, Helene Metzger, Anneliese Maier, and Ludwig Fleck; and even philosophers like David Hume. The exact connection Kuhn had with these thinkers is less important here than what he actually thought and how it affected the way we now think about science and the world.
    The Making of A Revolutionary Thomas Kuhn arrived at Harvard in the fall of 1940 as a freshman. He was already certain that he wanted to pursue a career in either math or physics. In an interview he gave to the Harvard Science Review in 1990, Kuhn remarked, "that theoretical turn of mind theoretical, ontological, cosmological ... that interest in fundamental problems; that was what drew me to mathematics and physics".
    But as an editor for the Harvard Crimson very much interested in literature, he was already expanding his mind into non-mathematical realms of knowledge: "I had the not uncommon problem of being reasonably good at and interested in things that went off on opposite directions". After he graduated, Kuhn worked for the Radio Research Laboratory and subsequently worked for the Air Force at the European Base in England, where he helped with intelligence problems. It wasn't until the summer of 1945 that he returned to Harvard to earn a Ph.D. in physics It was as a budding theoretical physicist in 1947 that Kuhn was asked by Harvard President James Conant to teach a General Education course that exposed undergraduate humanities concentrators to science. Attempting to reconcile the seemingly obvious flaws of Aristotle's Physics with Newtonian thinking for the class, Kuhn experienced an intellectual epiphany.
