Naturalizing Kuhn Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society 105 (2005) 109-127


I argue that the naturalism of Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure
of Scientific Revolutions, which he himself later ignored, is worthy
of rehabilitation. A naturalistic conception of paradigms is ripe for
development with the tools of cognitive science. As a consequence
a naturalistic understanding of world-change and incommensurability is
also viable.
