Thomas Kuhn (1922-1996), was a historian turned philosopher of science whose seminal work The Structure of Scientific Revolutions inspired a conceptual revolution away from logical positivism towards what has been called the “historicist turn” in the philosophy of science. Unusually for a book dealing with the philosophy of science, it has had a wide-ranging impact upon many other disciplines, including the social sciences, and has been named one of the most influential books of the twentieth century.
