Paradigm Shift

What is Paradigm Shift?

Paradigm Shift is when a common belief (paradigm) is replaced by (shift) a new updated belief. A great example, is that previously in our history it was widely believed that the Earth was flat, however with advances in cartography, navigation, and astronomy it is widely accepted that the Earth is spherical. Paradigm Shifts often arise when there are fundamental changes on viewing the underlying assumptions of something.
