Summary

Thomas Kuhn's Structures of Scientific Revolutions provides a way to think of the development of the natural sciences in the Muslim world as differing from the path taken in Europe while also reflecting broad engagement with the sciences. This excursus argues for a weak version of Kuhn's paradigm to better understand the divergent fate of the natural sciences in the Muslim world.
