For example, in regard to current debates regarding the nature of hypnosis and related experiences (Gibbons & Lynn, 2008; Gibbons & Woods, 2016), I would like to recommended Professor Frank Pajares' excellent outline and study guide for Thomas S. Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (Kuhn, 2012), which has recently been published in its fiftieth anniversary edition. Of particular relevance are Pajares' notes on Chapter V, X, and the chapters which follow it.
Kuhn was frequently cited by the late Theodore X.Barber, the leader of the non-state view of hypnosis, which is currently expressed in Theodore R. Sarbin's Believed- in Imaginings.(DeRivera&Sarbin, 1998).
i got a good laugh (and an invitation to lunch) at a meeting of the American Psychological Association when, with Barber in the audience, I announced that many of the old-time hypnotists would no doubt regard me as a "Barberian!"
As Shakespeare said in his play, The Tempest, "The past is prologue" -- or, as a New York cab driver reportedly phrased it, "Brother, you ain't seen nothin' yet!"
