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.
