"A landmark in intellectual history which has attracted attention far

beyond its own immediate field. . . . It is written with a combination

of depth and clarity that make it an almost unbroken series of

aphorisms. . . . Kuhn does not permit truth to be a criterion of

true. But if causing a revolution is the hallmark of a superior

paradigm, [this book] has been a resounding success." --Nicholas Wade,


"Perhaps the best explanation of [the] process of discovery." --William

"Among the most influential academic books in this century." --
