The structure of scientific revolutions by Thomas S Kuhn( Book )

337 editions published between 1962 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 7,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analysis of the history of science. Its publication was a landmark event in the sociology of knowledge, and popularized the terms paradigm and paradigm shift
The Copernican revolution : planetary astronomy in the development of Western thought by Thomas S Kuhn( Book )

104 editions published between 1952 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 2,337 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]

Wir wa ren beide etwas besorgt: Der Besuch war ein Experiment, und keiner van uns konnte sicher sein, dass er erfolgreich sein wtirde. Sein projekt war ein Buch liber meine philosophische Arbeit, ganz besonders liber, Die Struktur wissenschaflli cher Revolutionen'. Nachdem er meine Schriften mehrere Jahre lang studiert hatte, wollte er nun seine Resultate durch ausfUhrliche Diskussionen mit mir erg?nzen. Seine Initiative war van liberzeugenden Empfehlungsschreiben begleitetj ich be griisste sie und hatte Hilfe versprochen. Aber ich war als jemand bekannt, der vieI Arbeit hatte und der reizbar war, speziell Leuten gegenliber - mir schienen sie·sehr zahlreich -, die darauf bestanden, dass sie in meinen Arbeiten Ideen f?nden, die dort liberhaupt keinen Platz hatten, und van denen ich einige abgelehnt hatte. Wenn ich auf seine Ansichten auf die gleiche Weise reagieren wtirde, dann wtir den wir beide Schwierigkeiten bekommen. Unser Engagement fUr das kommcnde J ahr war unwiderruflich gegeben
