Not 4/5. “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions” caused great controversy very soon after it was published since many felt that science is much more objective and scientific than Thomas Kuhn’s book suggests.

And even half a century later, numerous scholars keep questioning its core concepts. Science, Technology, and Revolution. Recent scholarship in the history and philosophy of science has tended to favor the discrete character of scientific change. This outlook derives ultimately from the study of the emergence of modern science in the sixteenth and seventeenth : George Basalla.

"Written with style and thoughtfulness, the book educates and intellectually provokes the reader."—Everett Mendelsohn, professor of the history of science, Harvard University "Masterfully and without pretense, Mazlish takes the historical approach to guide the reader over the difficult terrain of technology and culture studies.

The scientific revolution was built upon the foundation of ancient Greek learning and science in the Middle Ages, as it had been elaborated and further developed by Roman/Byzantine science and medieval Islamic science.

The Scientific Revolution was the topic around which the field of history of science itself came to maturity. Kuhn’s popularization of the idea that even the mature natural sciences undergo deep conceptual change stimulated much general intellectual interest in the history of science during the s and s.

The revolution frame of. Thomas S.
