… modern science encourages conformity… For a start, you need to… take on a kind of disciplinary worldview… part of what the philosopher and historian Thomas Kuhn called a ‘paradigm’… In such an environment, researchers are bound to be conservative [regarding their] career…  This makes science more productive, but less creative. Enquiries can become hidebound and unadventurous.  As a result, truly revolutionary research — the domain of the maverick — is increasingly hard to pursue.
