  1. 10
    Human Understanding: The Collective Use and Evolution of Concepts por Stephen Toulmin (thcson)
    thcson: Toulmin gives a good critique of Kuhn and discusses the history of scientific concepts from an evolutionary point of view. He utilizes the history of science in much the same way.
  2. 11
    The Body in Question por Jonathan Miller (Thruston)
    Thruston: The nature of the scientific process set out in Kuhn's masterly account, is one of the central themes in Miller's entertaining history of medicine and the way humans perceive themselves.

Frustratingly verbose and repetitive. I actually made sure at one point my copy isn't a misprint with some pages repeated. This book neither explains nor concludes anything and the one point it does make could fit into an article. ( )

I read this book a little over a month ago and have no memories of it. It was OK I guess? ( )

Amazing analysis of the historical progression of science in general as well as within specific fields of science. Challenging to fully understand. Good that I had physics, chemistry and engineering course work so that I could recall some of the names and breakthroughs the author mentioned. Much of what he describes from a scientific perspective, in part, I found applicable to describing how other human endeavors progress (e.g., Values; bias of the establishment; stimulus-sensations-perception-interpretation).

Though this is over 50 years old I am just getting around to reading it; this edition includes the postscript addressing critics. Very happy that it is not too technical. This will inspire me to read more history of science, particularly the philosophy.

I had of course read _about_ it for many years but always assumed it above my head… turns out is it very accessible to the non-scientist. Kuhn was a Philosopher of Science History; to me the book discusses how science communities build and sometimes replace their common values and ideas. Though he states he makes no claim to its specific applicability to other fields, to me it seems quite generalized- it is a fascinating overview of how people learn how to see the world. Evidently subsequent to its publication the Social Sciences made quite good use of it. Of course it has its detractors as well.

I wish more people would read books like this… it might help to combat the public anti-science attitude of the last few decades, as can be particularly felt by the recent confusion of our pandemic response (although surprisingly or not, some people have interpreted Kuhn in the opposite way and have accused him of relativism… ). It has introduced me (via further reading) to the concept of post-positivism (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postpositivism) and to Michael Polanyi (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Polanyi) ( )

The lasting value of Kuhn’s thesis in The Structure of Scientific Revolutions is that it reminds us that any science, however apparently purified of the taint of philosophical speculation, is nevertheless embedded in a philosophical framework — and that the great success of physics and biology is due not to their actual independence from philosophy but rather to physicists’ and biologists’ dismissal of it. Those who are inclined to take this dismissal as meaning that philosophy is dead altogether, or has been replaced by science, will do well to recognize the force by which Kuhn’s thesis opposes this stance: History has repeatedly demonstrated that periods of progress in normal science — when philosophy seems to be moot — may be long and steady, but they lead to a time when non-scientific, philosophical questions again become paramount. ...

Kuhn deserves the respect of the rigorous criticism that has come his way. It is fitting that his provocative thesis has faced blistering scrutiny — and remarkable that it has survived to instruct and vex us five decades later.

History, if viewed as a repository for more than anecdote or chronology, could produce a decisive transformation in the image of science by which we are now possessed.
