In spite of this, or perhaps because of this, new theories, theory fragments or approaches appear year after year, and sometimes month after month. A large part of them is due to philosophic dissatisfaction with the dialectic features of modern physics and hence retrogressive rather than progressive; they usually have a short life and are soon forgotten.

Internalist historians emphasize a genuinely characteristic aspect of modern science: a scientist operates in his everyday work with knowledge at his disposal and with safe, unproblematic tools for the achievement of definite results. This aspect of scientific activity is brilliantly represented by T. Kuhn in his analysis of normal science (Kuhn, 1962). He brings his investigation to a logical limit, and then it becomes clear that scientific activity, understood as dealing solely with received results, is not compatible with creative thinking.
