Bojana Mladenovic is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Williams College. She works in the history of the philosophy of science, theories of emotions, and philosophy in literature. Her recently completed book— [End Page 394] Kuhn's Legacy: Epistemology and Metaphilosophy in Kuhn's Mature Thought—reconstructs and develops Kuhn's epistemology of science, and argues that Kuhn's novel conception of scientific rationality, as well as his account of the nature of justification and progress in science, have their intellectual roots in American pragmatism.
