IRIGIBEL-URIZ, Xabier. (No) possible pradigms of nursing: The necessity of an extraordinary rupture. Index Enferm [online]. 2010, vol.19, n.4, pp.274-278. ISSN 1699-5988.

A Foucaultian approximation of the discussion in terms of the nature of the normal science of nursing and the possible extraordinariness of the Transformation paradigm described by Kerouack et al. and assumed as a desire for development of nursing. A theoretical exercise where Thomas Kuhn offers his concepts which allow for the discussion in terms of the limits of the (No) Possible Paradigms, like space and instance from where tensions could emerge that give rise to extraordinary investigations and paradigms.

Keywords : Nursing; Epistemology; Paradigms; Kuhn; Foucault.
