Thomas Kuhn (1922-96) transformed the philosophy of science. His seminal 1962 work The Structure of Scientific Revolutions introduced the term paradigm shift into the vernacular and remains a fundamental text in the study of the history and philosophy of science. This introduction to Kuhns ideas covers the breadth of his philosophical work, situating The Structure of Scientific Revolutions within Kuhns wider thought and drawing attention to the development of his ideas over time. Kuhns work is assessed within the context of other philosophies of science notably logical empiricism and recent developments in naturalized epistemology. The author argues that Kuhns thinking betrays a residual commitment to many theses characteristic of the empiricists he set out to challenge. Kuhns influence on the history and philosophy of science is assessed and where the field may be heading in the wake of Kuhns ideas is explored.
