The discontinuous and disruptive nature of scientific revolutions is typically lost in most texts, review chapters, and general reference material which attempt to summarise the current state of knowledge on a topic at a given point in time. Review papers and texts in search of unifying themes and continuity in their own presentation typically "rewrite" the history of a field's development to make the gains in understanding appear more linear and cumulative than they are in reality. Such accounts contribute heavily to the "public" conception of science as an accumulative rather than as a "destroy and rebuild" kind of activity.
