This is a blog to discuss philosophy, chess, politics,
C. S. Lewis, or whatever it is that I'm in the mood to discuss.
Kuhn is essential reading. Popper's model of science is a good start but ultimately too simple.More radical still than Thomas Kuhn is Paul Feyerabend's Against Method.My own views are probably closer to those of Imre Lakatos.
