First Edition. xiii, 240 pp; ads. Original cloth. Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket. Stegmüller was an early, outspoken critic of Thomas Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolutions: "By likening the process of paradigm switch to religious conversion, Kuhn was explicitly challenging the whole of the 'logical reconstruction' thesis, and indeed seemed to some to be opening the door for the forces of 'mob psychology' in science. For many, this was too much to bear. Not surprisingly, therefore, immediate rescue attempts were energetically launched. The main thrust of these is the argument that, if Kuhn viewed the process of paradigm-shift as non-rational (or even irrational), then there must be something wrong with this concept of rationality. Working on the diffidence with which Kuhn put forward the idea, philosophers like Wolfgang Stegmuller dismissed it as a 'bit of musing' by a philosophical incompetent, and suggested that 'experts' would have little difficulty in closing the 'rationality gap' that Kuhn had opened. But it is noteworthy that no one, not even the ingenious Stegmuller, has actually succeeded in doing so" (please ask for source). N° de ref. de la librería 10476
