Philosophy of Science Reading Quiz 8 a. The effects of a crisis on work being done with normal science tradition are complexity. The crisis is revealed by the way it changes over time. The larger the crisis the more complex it is in normal science. Kuhn explains this by saying “astronomy’s complexity was increasing far more rapidly than its accuracy and that a discrepancy corrected in one place was likely to show up in another.” When Thomas Kuhn says that, he is talking about how complex the crisis can become in normal science. The way for that crisis to end is by proving the possibility of handling the crisis provoking, the problem is resisted and labeled, and a new candidate from a paradigm arises and fight for acceptance of it starts. b. When Thomas Kuhn claims that from another point of view, “every problem that normal science sees a puzzle… can be seen as a counterinstance and thus a source of crisis” he means that every problem that normal science looks at as a puzzle, the problem can also be looked at as a crisis as opposed to a puzzle or problem solver. The development of a science is not uniform but has different normal and revolutionary phases that differ completely. Puzzles and their solutions are familiar and straightforward, normal science can expect to gain a growing stock of puzzle solutions.
