    schema:description ""The book identifies the main task of science as representing reality. This involves the construction of a representational space and the subsequent modeling of reality with configurations of 'objects' in that space. Newton's mechanics, Einstein's relativity and quantum mechanics, then, all serve as representational spaces. Beyond Kuhn is a significant progression in scientific methodology. Other than serving as a sequel to Kuhn's Scientific Revolutions, it will be of great use in the fields of artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology and education."--Jacket."@en ;
