From Paradigms to "Paideia": Thomas S. Kuhn and Michael Polanyi in Conversation
Kennedy, Terence
Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, v31 n3 p193-199 Jun 2011
There are three approaches to the Kuhn-Polanyi relationship: their ideas are the same, can be reconciled, or profoundly diverge. This article seeks to show that both share a tradition of "paideia." Kuhn espouses scientific revolutions while Polanyi stresses reform and continuity within a Platonic worldview. (Contains 39 notes.)
