The problem with the use of the term paradigm, as Kuhn’s critics have pointed out, is that it connotes a level of satisfaction with the prevailing explanation that was rarely the case. As one critic remarked, in the era of Copernicus, ‘astronomy had long been, not in a paradigmatic, but an unsettled state’. 31 Although military theorists in Clausewitz’s day were also often ‘at war with one another’, few of them wrote about, or even appear to have considered, the underpinnings of their professional activities to the extent he did.
