anomaly: a phenomenon not explained by the existing paradigm
crisis: the point at which myriad anomalies provoke a reevaluation of the paradigm by way of working outside it to solve the puzzle posed by the anomalies
incommensurability: lacking common qualities necessary to make a comparison
normal science: the period of activity during which scientists' work centers on solving puzzles suggested by the paradigm, thereby further clarifying and articulating it
paradigm: a scientific achievement that serves as a model for a scientist's work, and informs the scientific community's viewpoint
paradigm shift: the point at which an existing paradigm is supplanted by a new paradigm that wins out over competing theories to explain an anomaly
scientific community: a group of practitioners that work under a paradigm
scientific revolution: the process during which a crisis generates scientific activity that produces a shift in the community members' commitment to shared assumptions
