The Longway Planetarium presents: Kuhnian Philosophy of Science: Major breakthrough or meaningless metaphysics. In 1962, Thomas Kuhn published what would become his seminal work, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions. In the subsequent decades, this provocative book would go on to inspire countless debates about the very nature of science itself. Kuhn suggests that there are two types of sciences: normal science and revolutionary science. He claims that the existence of revolutionary science calls into question whether or not science can really be considered a cumulative endeavor. This talk will outline Kuhn’s arguments for his ideas and will invite you to consider where you stand on Kuhn’s philosophies of science. 6-8pm. Tickets: $7 adults, $5 seniors 60-plus, $5 youth ages 2-11. Genesee County Resident Discount: $3.50 adults, $2.50 seniors 60-plus, $2.50 youth ages 2-11. Free for members!
