Philosophy of Science Reading quiz 7 a. The difference between Herschel and Whewell’s accounts of verae causae was that Herchel believed in two basic laws. One is empirical laws laws that connect things and point to regularities without really showing why things happen the way they do. The other law is the laws that are higher and refer to causes. Whewell and Herschel were very similar I their beliefs until they came across verae causae. Whewell showed himself as a rationalist that wanted to argue about experience of true causes as opposed to being and Empiricist like Herschel and wanting to argue from the experience of the true causes. b. According to Thomas Kuhn an anomaly is not sufficient to cause a crisis in normal science. The crisis is able to be quickly resolved in three different ways in normal science. The first is that a crisis ends in normal science because normal science proves the possibility of handling the crisisprovoking problem and everything returns back to normal. The second is that the problem resists and is named, but it is viewed as resulting from the field’s failure to get the necessary tools to solve it so scientists set it aside for a future generation to figure out the solution with more developed tools. And finally, the third is that a new candidate from a paradigm arises and a fight over the acceptance of it starts. c. According to Thomas Kuhn, the theoretical innovations and anomalous novelties of fact have in common are that normal science uses theories to solve puzzles and both theoretical innovations and anomalous novelties of fact resisted that idea.
