The study of disciplinary mind-sets was in part stimulated by Thomas Kuhn's book on paradigm shifts, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (1962), in which he distinguishes "normal science" from non-hegemonic paradigm free science. The study of the paradigm of science is a rich academic subject for contemporary anthropology as well as for philosophers and historians of science. The specific focus of my discussion will be the "mind-sets" that inform contemporary Energy Sciences and the challenges that these mind-sets present.

Buffet Dinner at 5:45 pm ($20 contribution for dinner guests / free for students).
