Kuhn’s Structure of Scientific Revolutions is one of the most cited books of the twentieth century. Its iconic and controversial nature has obscured its message. What did Kuhn really intend with Structure and what is its real significance? Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions is in many ways an unusual and remarkable book. It has a strong claim to be the most significant book in the philosophy of science in the twentieth century, even though it was written by a man who was not, at that time, a philosopher, describing himself as ‘an ex-physicist now working in the history of science’. Kuhn’s intentions for his book were nonetheless philosophical; yet, its effects have been felt widely beyond philosophy of science. The fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Structure provides an appropriate moment to consider the true significance of Kuhn’s book.
