Brother, can youse paradigm?

Multiple puns, smart commentary, great graphics, artwork, cartoons, public art... why have I been skimming past occasional links & commentary and not re-posting more? It's a treat I owe to myself if no one else. Plus, David Ruccio's posts and graphics have always been popular and well shared. Consider them back on the regular menu, if not here then at the blogueria...


Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, first published 50 years ago, is one of the few classics I tell students in pretty much all my classes they have to read before they leave college, whether or not it’s assigned in one of their courses. It contains important lessons, especially for economics, of radical paradigm shifts and the fundamental incommensurability among different theories and approaches.

David Weinberger retells one of the great stories about Kuhn that you can read at  Brother, can youse paradigm? along with the story behind the pun titling the post.
