Abstract: In the last decade of his life, Kuhn was working on a major book project which was to explain, modify and develop the central ideas of his controversial The Structure of Scientific Revolutions. This new project, The Plurality of Worlds: An Evolutionary Theory of Scientific Development, remained unfinished at the time of Kuhn’s death. I reconstruct his philosophical goals for this book and his mature philosophy of science on the basis of completed or sketched book chapters and related published and unpublished writings. I argue that mature Kuhn aims to ground his well-known historicism on a version of naturalized epistemology
