Example text

Kuhn agreed with Popper (and most other recent philo­ sophers of science) in seeing observation as 'theory laden', and science as a problem-solving activity which cannot arrive at an absolutely verifiable truth. However, he disagreed about the role of falsifiability and about the criteria demarcating science and non-science. 2. In his work, Kuhn paid much more attention than Popper to the history of science and the way in which scientists have actually worked. For example, he drew particularly on the development of modern chemistry from the earlier work of alchemists, as well as the development of physics.

To think of language as being like a city in which we live means that we cannot take up a position 'outside' language. Second, we might think of the way new streets are added to our city as referring to the way a language might change historically without losing its essential character. Language, he seems to be suggesting, does not develop through changes in 'external' reality (he rejects a corre­ spondence theory of language) but needs to be understood as a practice in its own right. Returning to our ecological question then, how might these reflections help us?

But Kuhn stated that all paradigms have anomalies and falsi­ fication is in reality not used as a primary criterion for paradigm rejection. He states (1970: 8) that 'competition between segments of the scientific community is the only historical process that ever actually results in the rejection of one previously accepted theory or in the adoption of another'. This, together with the incommensurable nature of different paradigms, leaves open the door to suggestions that a paradigm shift occurs because one group of scientists is just more powerful or has more social influence than another.
