A model for the thought. Theories, techniques, values, problems, metaphors shared at a certain epoch by the scientists of a specific discipline: It is the disciplinary foundation that allow them to understand each other. A set of basic assumptions about the reality taken for granted, largely determining what a discipline assumes to be reality. A paradigm has no impact on the natural universe. On June 22, 1633, the inquisition forced the scientist Galileo Galilei to abjure and abandon his theory. But the common belief of the time that the sun rotates around the earth had absolutely no effect on the reality, simply delayed a scientific discovery. While the reality of the natural laws is permanent, the social universe is in continuous change. However, the paradigms behind of social activities such as economy, law, management, governance, are rarely questioned.
