Who is thomas s. kuhn?

Famous quotes containing the words thomas s, thomas and/or kuhn:

    As in political revolutions, so in paradigm choice—there is no standard higher than the assent of the relevant community. To discover how scientific revolutions are effected, we shall therefore have to examine not only the impact of nature and of logic, but also the techniques of persuasive argumentation effective within the quite special groups that constitute the community of scientists.
    Thomas S. Kuhn (b. 1922)

    And from the first declension of the flesh
    I learnt man’s tongue, to twist the shapes of thoughts
    Into the stony idiom of the brain....
    —Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    Being sixty-five ... became a crossroads. We said, We have nothing to lose, so we can raise hell.
    —Maggie Kuhn (b. 1905)
