Kuhn, Postmodernism, and Regressive Science

For an excellent summary of Kuhn's place in the postmodern debacle, see Raman’s excellent article at http://www.metanexus.net/Magazine/ArticleDetail/tabid/68/id/10673/Default.aspx.

I use Kuhn’s book, “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions” as an example of the "cyclic theory" of history. History, of course, is actually spiralic, with progressive advances followed by regressive retreats, followed by even more progressive advances. Kuhn and the postmodernists are very much a part of the regression characteristic of the physics of the 20th century, as I explain in detail in "The Scientific Worldview: Beyond Newton and Einstein."

[FAQ] Why can't people post comments on my blog?

The Blogger / Google login status, and the ability to post comments, is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) "third party cookies", in their browser and on their computer. The effects of the newly unavoidable CAPTCHA, and the Google "One account" login, requires third party cookies, even more than before.




Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution, overall - but your readers may have to search for other filter(s) that affect their use of Blogger / Google.

Any filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago.
