Kuhn and Popper

These are two main protagonists of Philosophy of Science: Thomas Kuhn and Karl Popper.

What difference did they make? They must have made some because people get worked up because of their ideas. Before we get to do proper posts on them entertain yourself with this post at the blog Anti-Matter.

And then you have a post, there itself, Paul Feyerabend, the man we had whined about  in this post. The objectionable statement is the assertion to the effect that there is no scientific method. He has a book concerning that. It is called Against Method.
