Event description
The Kuhn Centennial Conference

About this event

​Thomas Kuhn (1922-1996) is widely considered as one of the most important philosophers of science in the 20th century. His book The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (SSR) is also regarded as one of the most influential works in the philosophy of science. Kuhn famously introduced the concept of paradigm to analyse the history of science. He also developed the incommensurability thesis. Kuhn’s work contributed to the so-called historical turn in the 20th century philosophy of science. Its influence goes beyond philosophy of science and makes a huge impact on history of science, sociology of science, and the social sciences.

2022 will mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Thomas Kuhn and the 60th anniversary of the publication of SSR. The conference aims to examine Kuhn’s contribution to contemporary philosophy of science, revisit his legacy for the history and philosophy of science, and reflect on the prospect of the Kuhnian philosophy of science.

**The conference is financially supported by the Aristotelian Society and British Society for the Philosophy of Science.
