Product description

Review

"Does the proposal for a newly cognitivized Kuhnian approach work? Can it offer the historian of science a useful set of tools? For this reviewer the answer is clearly Yes, though much remains to be done. Still given its richness and the clarity with which the case is argued, this is a work which will have to be dealt with. Cognitive science does offer historians tools for a new approach to the history of science, one that would have pleased Kuhn himself." - Ryan D. Tweney, Bowling Green State University

"This imaginative and carefully argued book should succeed in making historians and philosophers of science take a fresh look at the Kuhnian approach in the light of cognitive psychology; it also deserves a wider readership." --Luke O'Sullivan: Philosophy in Review

Book Description

Thomas Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolutions became the most widely read book about science in the twentieth century. In this book, first published in 2006, the theories of concepts developed by cognitive scientists are used to evaluate and extend Kuhn's most influential ideas.
