If outmoded and rejected scientific concepts were not "unscientific" in their days, then it is difficult, Kuhn argues, to see the development of science as a process of accumulation and a steady movement toward "truth". The progress of science does not appear to be accumulative, continuous, or even progressive, for that matter, but rather appears to occur through discrete jumps involving revolutionary changes between successive scientific paradigms Awakening the Kind Heart: How to Meditate on Compassion.
