Above is the definition for paradigm from Merriam Webster, a relatively useful dictionary that sometimes give accurate definitions. At least I used it a lot when I was studying English in high school. Among all the definitions I learn in this course for revolution, I like Dr. Robb’s definition the best. I would like to make a claim here that every revolution like-event is a paradigm shift.
