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

138 editions published between 1952 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 2,538 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]

Kuhn vs. Popper : the struggle for the soul of science by Steve Fuller( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Thomas Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolutions has sold over a million copies in more than twenty languages and has remained one of the ten most cited academic works for the past half century. In contrast, Karl Popper's seminal book The Logic of Scientific Discovery has lapsed into relative obscurity. Although the two men debated the nature of science only once, the legacy of this encounter has dominated intellectual and public discussions on the topic over since." "Almost universally recognized as the modern watershed in the philosophy of science, Kuhn's relativistic vision of shifting paradigms - which asserted that science was just another human activity, like art or philosophy, only more specialized - triumphed over Popper's more positivistic belief in science's revolutionary potential to falsify society's dogmas. But has this victory been beneficial for science? Steve Fuller argues that not only has Kuhn's dominance had an adverse impact on the field but both thinkers have been radically misinterpreted in the process."--Jacket
