This Episode looks at the journey of western thought from the perspective of Thomas Kuhn’s 1962 book, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions. Using a (very) extended metaphor, in which all of humanity is on a raft, setting out to sea from the Bay of Ignorance, in search of the Island of Truth, we look at Kuhn’s “paradigm shift” explanation for how we have arrived at what we know today.
