From time to time, the world come across realities that simply cannot be ignored. These realities are sometimes conflicting with the current philosophy when these occur, thus facing reluctant acceptance. The change in the way of thinking is known as a paradigm shift. This term was coined by the science philosopher Thomas Khun. Kuhn states that scientific advancement is not evolutionary, but rather a series of peaceful interludes punctuated by intellectually violent revolutions and in such revolutions one conceptual world view is replaced by another” [176].
