Definition: Paradigm Shift

A paradigm shift is a change from one way of thinking to another. It’s a revolution, a transformation, a sort of metamorphosis.

A paradigm shift does not mean that the old way of thinking about a subject is necessarily rejected completely. Rather, it is often the case that the old modes of cognition are subsumed within the new approach to the paradigm’s subject.
