Kuhnfest!

This year marks the 50th anniversary of what is almost certainly the most famous work in the history and philosophy of science: Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of the Scientific Revolutions. You may not know the book, but unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard the term “paradigm shift.” That’s Tom Kuhn. The Program in the History of Science and the Department of Philosophy at Princeton have put together a two-day workshop this weekend to consider Kuhn’s legacy, both for the history and philosophy of science and the wider world. (Click on the image to enlarge.) I’ll be there, if nothing else to see whether the philosophers and historians have anything to say to one another.
