The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (SSR) was originally printed as an article in the International Encyclopedia of Unified Science, published by the logical positivists of the Vienna this book, Kuhn argued that science does not progress via a linear accumulation of new knowledge, but undergoes periodic revolutions, also called "paradigm shifts" (although he did not coin the Alma mater: Harvard University.

His book, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, which was first published in , is one of the most cited academic books of all time and made Kuhn perhaps the most influential philosopher of science in the twentieth century. His work challenged the prevailing view of progress in “normal science,” which was that science has been a. The Structure of Scientific Revolutions is that kind of book.

  The central idea of his extraordinarily influential—and controversial—book The Structure of Scientific Revolutions is that the development of science is driven, in normal periods of science, by adherence to what Kuhn called a ‘ paradigm ’. The functions of a paradigm are to supply puzzles for scientists to solve and to provide the tools for their solution. With focus on the molecular structures and interactions of milk proteins in various processing methods, Milk Proteins presents a comprehensive overview of the biology and chemistry of milk, as well as featuring the latest science and developments. Significant insight into the use of milk proteins from an industry viewpoint provides valuable.
