Description:

The paper discusses how the idea of the Scientific Revolution as a particular period in the history of science and as introduced by Kuhn in early 1960s stood unchallenged for decades. The paper explains that Kuhn's theory gave the name "The Scientific Revolution" to a particular period in the history of science, namely around 17th century, during which radical changes occurred in the scientific though and as a result "modern science" emerged. The paper relates that it wasn't until late 1990s that Kuhn's ideas were seriously challenged to the point that the existence of revolutions in science was questioned and as a result the view "that the traditional account of the Scientific Revolution simply does not add up" emerged.
