The Copernican revolution : planetary astronomy in the development of Western thought by Thomas S Kuhn( Book )

173 editions published between 1885 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 2,608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author brings to a common focus the considered approach of the historian, the technical understanding of the scientist and the skill and experience of an able teacher. No careful reader of this well-wrought volume can fail to appreciate the nicely balanced interplay of these elements in the full explication of one of the major turning points in the evolution of scientific thought. For those concerned with the teaching of the history of science, this discussion of the issues involved in the Copernican revolution will prove to be indispensable, a superb analysis of the anatomy of revolution. Those drawn to the question of meaning which the historian of science can give to the evolution of ideas will find this book equally valuable, a paradigm of synthesis and interpretation." [Isis]

Thomas Kuhn's revolution : an historical philosophy of science by James A Marcum( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Kuhn (1922-1996) has had a tremendous impact on the history and philosophy of science. In 1962 his famous work The Structure of Scientific Revolutions helped to inaugurate a revolution - the historiographic revolution - during the latter half of the twentieth century. That revolution provided a new understanding of science, in which 'paradigm shifts' (scientific revolutions) are punctuated with periods of stasis (normal science). Kuhn's revolution not only had a huge influence on the history and philosophy of science but on many other disciplines as well." "James A. Marcum's new book focuses on the following questions: Who was Kuhn? What exactly was his historiographic revolution? How did it come about? Why did it have the impact it did? What, if any, will its future influence be for both academia and society? At the heart of the answers to these questions is the person of Kuhn himself, i.e., his personality, his pedagogical style, his institutional and social commitments, and the intellectual and social context in which he practiced his trade. In a developmental approach to Kuhn's ideas, Marcum maps the unfolding of Kuhn's ideas over four decades. Drawing on the rich archival sources at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and engaging fully with current scholarship on Kuhn, Marcum's is the first book to show in detail how Kuhn's influence transcended the boundaries of the history and philosophy of science community to reach many others - sociologists, economists, theologians, political scientists, educators, and even policy-makers and politicians."--Jacket
