Week 2 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Steven Shapin’s The Scientific Revolution (2008) opens with “There was no such thing as the Scientific Revolution” (Introduction, p.1), a bold challenge to the paradigmatic model promoted by Thomas Kuhn. Appraise this argument in light of this week’s readings and multimedia, as well as those from the previous week.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from this week’s required material(s) and/or other scholarly sources, and properly cite any references. By Day 7, respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts and one of your instructor’s.
