I don’t have a lot of time for off line reading these days, but I do try to get through a few pages of something thought provoking each week. Lately, that’s been reading Thomas Kuhn‘s “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions“. It’s pretty interesting stuff (The Philosophy/History of Science) and definitely related to my profession; I don’t know why I haven’t read it before now. Well, actually I do. I suppose I’ve always felt a little vain.
The author and I share a surname. I believe we are distantly related. I’ve seen a photo of Thomas and the family resemblance is definitely there-He looks a lot like my grandfather. I will have to check to see how distant our relation actually is.
Anyway, I’ve gotten over feelings of being vain and am slowly making my way through the book. I’ll probably be posting some thoughts on it as I make my way through it, and thought this post would serve to anchor these subsequent posts.
