Thomas Kuhn (18 July 1922 – 17 June 1996) was a physicist, historian, and philosopher of science who played a significant role in the discussions on scientific change in the 1960-80s. His major work titled The Structure of Scientific Revolutions was published in 1962. It is widely considered as one of the definitive works of the classic philosophy of science.
