March 21, 2013       7:00 p.m.     "THE COPERNICAN REVOLUTION: Is it a good model?" USM President Theo Kalikow

USM President Theo Kalikow presents a lecture commemorating the 50th anniversary of T.S. Kuh's "Structure of Scientific Revolutions.  Precis: who knows?" 

President Kalikow taught history and philosophy of science at Southeastern Mass University (now UMASS-Dartmouth) for approximately 15 years.   She always wanted to teach the history of science in a planetarium, so be prepared for a long evening.
