Kuhn of being a relativist, by saying that the Kuhnian view provides no way for paradigms to be compared to each other.

Since Kuhn determines there is not a collective foundation for which two paradigms can be measured, the idea that he disproves scientific progress is something skeptics argue for. Though Kuhn is argued to...

    “There can be no progress without conflict.” The word conflict can be defined as a ‘serious disagreement or argument, typically a protracted one’; a ‘clash of opposing feelings or needs’. On the other hand, progress can refer to a ‘forward or onward movement toward a destination’. There is no doubt that when these two words are put in juxtaposition, there is a clash in ideas; a conflict if one will. A prolonged difference is vastly in contrast with the concept advancement and forward change;...
