Jean Hardy cites Thomas Kuhn’s function The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, in which he states that there is a predominant scientific paradigm at any 1 time which creates a set of models about the nature of the globe. This opinion is echoed by Hardy once again in her pamphlet There is Another World, but it is This One, in which she expresses Karl Mannheim’s view that ‘the major institutions in that society….will represent that dominant set of assumptions about the nature of the society and its picture of reality’. (1988. P3.) These predominant paradigms have an effect on our innermost becoming, influencing the way in which we construct reality and make which means of the globe around us.
