How does science progress? Does it change smoothly or discontinuously? Build on past ideas or reject and replace them? In this seminar we will read and think together about Thomas S. Kuhn's famous book /The Structure of Scientific Revolutions/. Kuhn's book will be our launching point for wide-ranging discussions about the nature and history of science.
