İsmail Tuncer

Özet


Abstract:  In this paper  firstly  the sociology of knowledge theories about progress in sciences  is reviewed.  Then  whether or not  the Keynesian departure that took place in the nineteen twenties in macroeconomics was a revolution in the sense of Kuhn’s historiographical framework is examined. Moreover, the framework of Kuhnian scientific revolution which  is better in  hard sciences such as  physics than  the others  is outlined. Finally, a  discussion on  whether the  Keynesian departure that took pace in 1920’s fits in the Kuhnian framework of a scientific revolution  is presented.
