There is something interesting in the way how paradigms develop, grow and decay. At first, they showed promise solving a problem by using a different way of thinking. They start to get adopted and we close our eyes to the problems that they carry. Later some become so popular that they start excluding some other competing useful paradigms, and we get into kind of a paradigm monoculture, and their undesired effects start to grow so large that they can be ignored anymore. Competing paradigms start to solve the problems the current paradigm created,
Paradigms are tools, means not ends, they are color lenses to our brains, they create a bias in how we perceive reality and act upon.
Don’t be mono-paradigm, learn how to switch paradigms and optimize results, not means.
