Re: orion-list Jung's synchronicity(?), Kuhn, and Popper

Dear orion list,

Shortly after writing to the list offering what I would call, Juergen 
(thanks for your response), not a "veto," but suggestions and observations 
that a so-called and ill-defined "consensus" was a misreading of Qumran 
history of scholarship and a misapplication of Kuhnian paradigms, I went to 
the library to find a periodical. I did not find it, but I did find:

"Kuhnian Paradigms and Biblical Scholarship: Is Biblical Studies a 
Science?" by Robert F. Shedinger in JBL 119 (Fall 2000) 453-471.

Shedinger takes Norman Golb's book Who Wrote the DSS? as one of his three 
parade examples of misapplication of Kuhnian paradigm changes.

To Al Baumgarten, I'd like to read such a text, too!
