Two books were in particular influential in recent philosophy of science: Karl R. Popper’s Logic of Scientific Discovery, and Thomas S. Kuhn’s Structure of Scientific Revolutions. Both agree upon the significance of revolutions in science, however vary concerning the function of complaint in science’s innovative enlargement. This quantity arose out of a symposium on Kuhn’s paintings, with Popper within the chair, at a global colloquium held in London in 1965. The e-book starts with Kuhn’s remark of his place adopted via seven essays providing complaint and research, and in the end via Kuhn’s answer. The e-book will passion senior undergraduates and graduate scholars of the philosophy and historical past of science, in addition to skilled philosophers, philosophically prone scientists, and a few psychologists and sociologists.
