Thomas Kuhn and the Structure of Scientific Revolutions


The idea of the "paradigm"


Paradigms determine perceptions as well as interpretations.


Paradigms consist of concepts and relationships.


Paradigms are associated with a unique vocabulary, which carries those concepts.


But the same word can have different meanings in different paradigms

- (e.g. mass in Newtonian physics vs. Einstein's physics or justice in politics).
