Paradigm shifts are rare and significant changes in the way humans view the world. They are major changes which are controversial when first proposed but eventually come to be accepted as a major advancement in scientific knowledge and understanding. Examples of paradigm shifts in past scientific world views are the revolutionary ideas that the earth is round not flat and that it rotates around the sun.
