The Structure of Scientific Revolutions focuses on conceptual issues like the practice of “Normal Science,” influence of historical events, emergence of scientific discoveries, nature of scientific revolutions and progress through scientific revolutions. Kuhn’s book argues that the evolution of scientific theory does not emerge from the straightforward accumulation of facts, but rather from a set of changing intellectual circumstances and possibilities.
The Innovator’s Dilemma explains the phenomenon by which an innovation transforms an existing market or sector by introducing simplicity, convenience, accessibility, and affordability where complication and high cost are the status quo. Initially, a disruptive innovation is formed in a niche market that may appear unattractive or inconsequential to industry incumbents, but eventually the new product or idea completely redefines the industry.
