|Thomas Kuhn and Scientific Revolutions|
This radio broadcast examines the ideas of science historian and philosopher Thomas Kuhn; current revolutionary theories; and how revolutionary advances in science that change the way people view the world come about. The show explains how Kuhn believed there were periods in science when there is no consensus; what problem solving is like during normal science periods when one paradigm dominates; and revolutionary paradigm shifts whenever new observations can not fit into the old paradigm. There is debate about what is a normal advance in science and what specifically constitutes an actual paradigm shift. The broadcast is 49 minutes in length.
