The Structure of Social Revolutions

…the Kuhnian scientific revolution, where a paradigm shift occurs and then people working under the old set of principles can’t understand those working under the new ones. Thomas Kuhn focused his work on science — does it apply to social rules and dynamics?

I think it does apply to social settings, like the corporate working world. Social rules apply in a bundle, not individually. They work together to enforce a certain view of the world and a set of behaviors that aim at meeting the goals embedded in that view. They are treated as dogma by the people working under their influence — rarely questioned or changed.
