Argues that the Kuhnian philosophy of the history of science, as presented in Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions owes a lot to the ideas of James Bryant Conant (1893-1978), who was president of Harvard University.

Fuller also maintains Kuhn’s central idea of a “paradigm shift” in the sciences is actually a sociopolitically motivated view of conceptual revolutions in scientific history.
