What Paradigm Shift? An Interrogation of Kuhn's Idea of Normalcy in the Research Practice of Educational Administration.
English, Fenwick W.
International Journal of Leadership in Education, v4 n1 p29-38 Jan-Mar 2001
Because of continuous centering and recentering, paradigm shifts posited by Kuhn are not really changes; they are commensurate. New theories are simply old theories remade and renamed. The alternative is to consider conceptual diversity, abandoning the idea of a paradigm or a singular field of theory and practice. (Contains 27 references.) (MLH)
