The Heuristic and Methodological Potential of the Concept “Scientific Revolution”
Languages of publication
The concept of revolution in science is widely used in philosophy of science. We be-lieve that the concept of revolution was borrowed from social-political literature and without any philosophical analysis was transferred to history of science. For this reason, attempts to transform that concept into an efficient instrument of building a theory of the development of scientific knowledge cannot be successful. This concept is nothing more than a metaphor for emphasizing empirical and theoretical discoveries of great significance in the history of science.
