Thomas Kuhn

Definitely my favorite philosopher of science. In fact, when I started graduate school in philosophy, I thought I might like to do philosophy of science. Unfortunately, as this post points out, Kuhn hasn't had much success in the philosophy of science, and philosophers of science are not all that interested in pursuing a research program inspired by him.

  1. Hasn't had much success? His book, Structure, was one of the most important scientific publications of the 20th century.
