The Copernican Revolution: Planetary Astronomy in the Development of Western Thought

Thomas S. Kuhn

Copernican Revolution coverThomas Kuhn’s The Copernican Revolution was pivotal to my undergraduate education.  I read the book as a requirement for a course in the history of science.  The Copernican Revolution opened a new world to me, in which science could be, in addition to a set of facts, a way of thinking, a philosophy, a historical movement, and even a culture
