characters Kuhn vs Popper The Struggle for the Soul of Science 107 Free read ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB î Steve Fuller characters Kuhn vs Popper The Struggle for the Soul of Science Thomas Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolutions has sold over a million copies in than twenty languages and has remained one of the ten most cited academic works for the past half century In contrast Karl Popper's seminal book The Logic of Scientific Discovery has lapsed into relative obscurity Although the two men debated the nature of science only once the legacy of this encounter has dominated intellectual and public discussions on the topic eve. Nice introduction to the thoughts and conseuences of each man s philosophical project As some reviewers say the struggle of the title isn t uite shown Fuller s treatment is uite measured but tinged I think with a little of his own bias I may be mistaken here though but Fuller does rehabilitate Popper a little One gets the impression that he sees him as unfairly maligned and unjustly neglected I detected a little herovillain Popper as underdog vibe in Fuller s treatmentStronger the author has no compunction in trying to burst some hagiographical bubbles surrounding Kuhn impugning I wanted to say im Kuhn ing him for his intellectual uiescence his reluctance to engage with legacy of his and his disciples thought in the social and scientific arena In this regard Fuller compares how opinion has come to regard Heidegger orthodoxy largely excuses his Nazism whilst celebrating his thought Orthodoxy excuses Kuhn s apparent consent for rightist authority his passivity and lack of support for leftist politics by the same method in celebrating his ideas his personality is eclipsed Fuller says that Kuhn saw himself near the end of his life as a lucky amateur One gets the impression I may easily be mistaken that later life finds Kuhn a kind of sad Pandora trying in vain to cram his revolutionary ideas back into their jar One may say in Kuhn s defence that though a man or yes a woman too may birth an idea larger than himself once the idea has grown beyond his tutelage or paternal sway he can do little to oversee its decisions The pain and pleasure of parenthood intellectual parenthood too one imagines is that ones children grow up to be autonomous in existence thriving precisely because of happy support from friends and peers Nevertheless might an admonishing word a carefully weighted glance have served to cause self reflection Fuller suggests the history of science and indeed perhaps the current condition of science as a largely commercialised practical results orientated enterprise might have been different had Kuhn been less reticent as he watched his child overtop him and had Popper succeeded in politicising his vision for science as a viable alternative in the epistemic ecosystem Fuller introduces the idea of negative responsibility here and I d not encountered the concept before He also explains why Kuhn found his alma mater conducive to his thought and how Government found his thought conducive to legitimising the role of knowledge as necessary to further militaryindustrial aspirationsThough Kuhn and Popper naturally receive a lot of attention here Fuller also dips into exploring Feyerabend Lakatos Adorno and Habermas Richard Rorty gets a few pages for how he came to excuse Heidegger as person whilst raising him to status as philosopher ne plus ultra So too do we encounter Foucault whose histories of the present were adopted uickly at roughly the same time as Kuhn but critically says Fuller Foucault is careful to stand by his doctrines and opinions Foucault was vocal in his presentation of marginalised voices a writer who unlike Kuhn actively courted interviews and approached rebuttal of criticism as method to promulgate his own opinions and the conseuences following from their publication Reading the history and thought of both men it is for me as if Kuhn tossed a stone into intellectual circles or academia and was content to turn his back and walk away leaving the ripples to swell and muddy and merge We are still feeling the effects of that stone those ripples Harder will be not to merely wait until they become past history vanished to leave smooth water and unruffled traces harder it will be to like Foucault or Feyerabend or like Popper himself realise that though we may be in such a stone tossed pond we may yet try to ride the wavelets try to alter our course try and steer into the swell because it is right and brave But won t that merely mean a paradigm shift I can t say It depends on who your guru is
