Revisiting Thomas Kuhn

In the context of seeing that Kuhn had discussed the disciplinary matrix in the Postscript of 1969 to his The Structure of Scientific Revolution, I revisited that postscript and was struck by the degree to which Kuhn was Kantian in his outlook with his distinction of stimuli versus perception.

Imagine my non-surprise when in the Neusis interview, Kuhn admits that Kant was among the first four philosophers he learned about at Harvard.
