ABSTRACT

Kuhn rejects totally the orthodox inductivist view of methodology. He does not regard science as an individualistic, piecemeal or incremental process. Rather, science is dependent upon adopting a particular view of the world and subsequent research activity will be designed to fit the facts into this preconceived view. Kuhn argues that until any science adopts a reasonably unified view of the phenomena with which it is interested, little, if any, progress can be made.
