    1. read Kuhn's "Logic of Discovery or Psychology of Research," the first essay in this book. On its own, ignoring Kuhn's more sophisticated work elsewhere, it's really pretty weak and unconvincing. Basically, he says Popper is wrong and puzzle-solving distinct from critical discourse, rather than tests, is what maybe could be said to distinguish science from non-science or pseudoscience. Maybe nails Popper on one or two points, but fails to present anything interesting in its own rightso read Kuhn' [...]


    2. This book starts off pretty good, but then the last few authors wind up talking about their own super-abstract ideas rather than talking about Kuhn—and at great length. Kuhn seems to be its own example of a paradigm. It really seems to standalone and be incommensurate. I wish I could see more engagement like this, but then I also wish this were more engaged. The first couple of authors (esp. Masterman are very interesting).
