The second stage of Kuhn's model is the "crisis" stage. This period consists of anomalies and contradictions that challenge the existing paradigm. Researchers question the current paradigm and alternative explanations are explored for the anomalies.
Damn this mf is rude asf y'all.
Now let's have a bit of a chat with René Descartes, a French philosopher, scientist, and mathematician who is widely considered to have have been one of the most influentialfigures on modern science.
René, in your own words, please explain what your new paradigm idea was.
First of all bitch, it's Mr. Descartes to you. And I'm surprised you don't know about my paradigm seeing that I literally am the most important person every because I changed the course of history, like don't even.
But yeah, here's an explanation for all of the dumbasses out there: basically, what I did was say that we should adopt a method of doubt and question all knowledge, because deductive reasoning is 100% the only way to obtain true knowledge.
The third stage of Kuhn's model is the "revolution" stage. Through the alternative explanations, a new paradigm emerges that is more comprehensive, coherent, and rational. The new paradigm gradually becomes accepted into the scientific community and becomes the new dominant world view.
Basically Aristotle was a flaming moron because he thought that scientific research should be done primarily through sensory techniques and rely on subjective observation. My method of doubting all knowledge and using rational logic to arrive at knowledge pave the way for the futuristic scientific method of empirical observation and analysis.
Sorry, I just have on last question before we go on our way. I'm sure you have a very important hair appointment to get to, so I'll make this quick. Would you briefly explain to the viewers how your paradigm became the new adopted world view?
Okay it looks like we better wrap this up quickly before I end up on the wrong side of this guy's fist.
Okay, jeez. After that quite unique chat with Descartes, let's finally give it up for the man of the hour: Charles Peirce, the father of pragmatism!Hi Charles, would you please explain to the viewers your work that built upon Descartes method?
The final stage of Kunh's model is similar to the first stage, where the cycle reverts back to normal science. Just as before, researchers now work within this new paradigm to produce knowledge. This stage also includes a systematic evaluation of the new paradigm: what works well? What limitations are there? What anomalies appear here that require new explanations?
Thanks Charles, you're literally the best. Anyway here's the end of our time traveling journey folks. I hope you enjoyed the tour of history! :)
Yes absolutely y'all, I'm glad to see you prioritizing your learning! Essentially what I did was propose an alternate method than doubt to arrive at any knowledge. My man René always wanted to doubt everything from the start, while I thought that we should wait for proof of inaccuracy before doubt. Basically, René wanted a "guilty before proven innocent" view, and I wanted an "innocent until proven guilty view.
Also, if you're every back and have time, we should hang sometime! You can even bring the whole gang of viewers!
