Genre: Science

A good book may have the power to change the way we see the world, but a great book actually becomes part of our daily consciousness, pervading our thinking to the point that we take it for granted, and we forget how provocative and challenging its ideas once were—and still are. The Structure of Scientific Revolutions is that kind of book. When it was first published in 1962, it was a landmark event in the history and philosophy of science. Fifty years later, it still has many lessons to teach.

In selecting the papers for this volume I have excluded all physics papers proper. I have further omitted all book rev.iews. Instead, I have included two papers not published previously; they are marked by an asterisk (*) in the table of contents. Since many of the papers were occasioned by Symposia or similar gatherings their chronological order is rather accidental. Hence I have tried to group the papers thematically into four parts.

As for all my work since 1960, I gratefully acknowledge the support of the U.S. National Science Foundation. A grant from its program in the History and Philosophy of Science supported directly the research presented here. Grants from the programs in Applied Mathematics and Solid Mechanics enabled me to pursue in the context of current research such old ideas as seemed to deserve new development, the results of which may be seen in my recent papers on the efficiency of irreversible engines, absolute temperatures,
and the teaching of thermodynamics to undergraduate engineers. Thus past and present have again, as often before, illuminated each other.
