Paradigm Lost: The Human Chromosome Story.
Unger, Lawrence; Blystone, Robert V.
Bioscene, v22 n2 p3-9 Aug 1996
Discusses whether the discovery in 1956 that humans have a chromosome number of 46, as opposed to 47 or 48 as previously thought, fits into a paradigm shift of the Kuhnian type. Concludes that Kuhn probably would not have considered the chromosome number shift to be large enough to be a focus for one of his paradigms. (AIM)
