Re: Popper to Kuhn
Popper has some interesting contributions but his whole aim is silly (the only reason to trust deductive reasoning is that empirically it works; thus trying to use it to justify empiricism is ultimately futile).
Kuhn has some interesting insights, but his notion of scientific paradigms is simplified to the point of absurdity.
