Yes, I have a fifty year old edition of Kuhn’s book that was a turning point in my graduate studies years. I was dealing with it as a window on historical change driven by technology.

Excellent project. It will take all of us doing this. I’ve been working on this from a much broader perspective. Finding the New Paradigm is the newest of many pieces on this. I think you may find it is compatible with what you are attempting.
