Black-Body Theory and the Quantum Discontinuity, 1894-1912 (1978; second edition 1987) is a book in which Thomas Kuhn, a philosopher and historian of science known for his work The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (1962), surveys the development of quantum mechanics. The second edition has a new afterword.
Author Alexander Bird describes Kuhn's book as "masterly", writing that it "differs from traditional history of science less in the kind of explanation offered and more in the vast erudition and scholarly attention to detail displayed."
