The historian of science Thomas Kuhn  gave paradigm its contemporary meaning when he adopted the word to refer to the set of practices that define a scientific discipline at any particular period of time:

    * what is to be observed and scrutinized;
    * the kind of questions that are supposed to be asked and probed for answers in relation to this subject;
    * how these questions are to be structured;
    * how the results of scientific investigations should be interpreted;
    * how is an experiment to be conducted, and what conceptual tools are available to conduct the experiment.
