Thomas Kuhn's, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions is one of the best-known and most influential books of the twentieth century. But were Kuhn's ideas as revolutionary as the conventional wisdom holds? Steve Fuller argues that Kuhn advocated what was actually a profoundly conservative view of science and how one ought to study its history - a view Fuller charges helped usher in the "Science Wars" and stifle much innovative research.Printed Pages: 448.
