Summary

Thomas Kuhn A Philosophical History for Our Times. Steve Fuller. University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 2000. 490 pp. $35, £24.50. ISBN 0-226-26894-2.

In this detailed and provocative account, Fuller argues that--despite the dramatic shift in the image of science and scientific progress that followed The Structure of Scientific Revolutions--Kuhn held very conservative views of science and how it ought to be studied.
