Publication Date: 1996-12-15
Recommended by Anthony Micchelli, Reference Librarian: "I love thinking about this book as it discusses the exposition of historical scientific/philosophical ideas/studies. It is a foundational work in American/Analytical philosophy as it posits a de-structuring/deconstruction of classical academic/scholarly structures as conceptualizations or conceptualized phenomena. He also theorizes that when these concepts, which are usually in opposition, are ruptured, new scientific revolutions/scholarly paradigms are created."
