Philosophy of Science Reading Quiz 4 The three ways the normal science is like solving a puzzle are that there is no standard of judgment that it’s outcome will be interesting or important by its very nature., through result there is occasional frustration, and that a problem must be characterized by more than an assured solution. There is not standard of judgment that the puzzle’s outcome will be interesting or important by its very nature. Kuhn explains that the biggest of problems are not puzzles at all and that no man, whether he be genius or not, will ever be able to solve the puzzle purely based on skill because of how complex the problem is and how many factors need to be taken into account for it. He says that through the value of the nature is no outcome for the puzzle but the existence of a solution is. Through result there is occasional frustration. Just like how there are some frustrations when trying to figure out the configurations of the pieces of a puzzle, there is frustration in figuring out the configurations of certain aspects and theories in a study. There are challenges within studies that can be extremely frustrating and hard to get around, but when the “puzzle” or study in this case is complete, the frustrations that occurred due to either unexpected results, or misunderstood results will all go away and the reason for those results will be clear. More than an assured solution must characterize a problem. Kuhn explains this by say that when solving a jigsaw puzzle, the goal is not to just make a picture, but be able to go through the steps of putting the puzzle together and knowing how to do so. In this case, the picture would not be the solution. The methods used and the experiments done are the steps that make the solution in which there are no “holes” or unclear areas of how the scientist came to that solution. The experiments were not forced in a way for them to work to create the solution, but they naturally happened for the solution to result.
