The Structure of Punditocratic Revolutions
I'm so used to seeing Thomas Kuhn's work name-checked and misrepresented by conservative bloviators that it hardly registers any more. But yesterday David Brooks did it not to condemn Kuhn, but to praise him. A paradigm shift indeed.

You often see right-wing approval of Kuhn in the corporate world, often with buzz-words imported along with management consultants.
But when a company starts requiring employees to attend meetings where "paridigm" is explained by consultants who have little familarity with Kuhn or any of his critics - this a pretty good indication that in 6 months something dramatic will happen at the company. Like massive layoffs.
I wonder if from this perspective Brooks collumn is just telling Lebanon to get a new way of looking at things, OR ELSE.

Kuhn at Stanford Encyclopedia
I probably shouldn't read these Stanford articles like they were blog posts.

A more interesting misrepresentation in that column was his calling Malcolm Gladwell a "social scientist," when he is not. Perhaps Brooks was looking to boost the standing of journalists who dabble in speculative social science?

Of course, neo-cons are radical relativists.

I decided to read that book when two professors (one in economics, one in psychology) discussed it. My god, is it boring.
