Abstract

Algunas interpretaciones recientes de la obra de Thomas Kuhn subrayan su contribución a la preservación de aspectos centrales del positivismo lógico, como resultado de un desconocimiento de la corriente (y, más en general, de la filosofía de la ciencia de la época) y de una crítica anti-positivista que, también por ese motivo, era superficial. En este artículo ofrezco argumentos en contra de dicha tesis partiendo de un texto inédito de Kuhn: sus conferencias en el Instituto Lowell de Boston en 1951, The Quest for Physical Theory, que fueron un primer intento de exhibir el punto de vista más tarde ofrecido en The Structure of Scientific Revolutions.

Some recent scholarship on Kuhn emphasizes his unconscious contribution to logical positivism — a consequence of Kuhn’s superficial knowledge and criticism of that school of thought. In this paper I argue against that thesis on the basis of an unpublished text: The Quest for Physical Theory (1951), his lectures at the Lowell Institute, Boston, and an early version of the point of view of The Structure of Scientific Revolutions.
