Black-body Theory and the Quantum Discontinuity, 1894-1912 by Thomas S. Kuhn

Book Description

"A masterly assessment of the way the idea of quanta of radiation became part of 20th-century physics. . . . The book not only deals with a topic of importance and interest to all scientists, but is also a polished literary work, described (accurately) by one of its original reviewers as a scientific detective story." John Gribbin, "New Scientist" "Every scientist should have this book." Paul Davies, "New Scientist""

Books By Author Thomas S. Kuhn

Structure of Scientific Revolutions by Thomas S. Kuhn Structure of Scientific Revolutions, Paperback (May 2012)

Challenges long-standing linear notions of scientific progress, arguing that transformative ideas don't arise from the day-to-day, gradual process of experimentation and data accumulation, but that revolutions in science, those breakthrough moments that disrupt accepted thinking and offer unanticipated ideas, occur outside of normal science.

Brecht on Art and Politics by Thomas S. Kuhn Brecht on Art and Politics, Hardback (March 2003)

With each section beginning with a short introductory essay summarizing Brecht's thought in the relevant year, this volume contains new translations to extend our image of one of the 20th century's most entertaining and thought-provoking writers on culture, aesthetics and politics.

Road Since Structure by Thomas S. Kuhn Road Since Structure, Paperback (December 2002)

"The road since structure", assembled with Kuhn's input before his death in 1996, follows the development of his thought through the later years of his life. Collected here are several essays and an extensive autobiographical interview discussing his life and philosophy

Tiger and the Shark by Thomas S. Kuhn Tiger and the Shark, Paperback (July 1991)

The early 20th century brought about the rejection by physicists of the doctrine of determinism - the belief that complete knowledge of the initial conditions of an interaction in nature allows precise and unambiguous prediction of the outcome. This book traces the origins of a central problem leading to this change in viewpoint.
