Thomas Kuhn

History…suggests that the scientific enterprise has developed a uniquely powerful technique for producing surprises…Produced inadvertently by a game played under one set of rules, their assimilation requires the elaboration of another set. After they have become parts of science, the enterprise, at least of those specialists in whose particular field the novelties lie, is never quite the same again.
