SOCIOLOGY 166 – Do facts exist independently of theory

"Do facts exist independently of theory?" Put another way, can we scientifically investigate the world by "focusing just on facts"—without the potential preconceived bias of one theory or another? Explain what Kuhn's answer to this question would be, and why. Your response should convey a convincing understanding of the relevant aspects of the concept of paradigmatic science, and must include an example of how facts exist. This example can be either from the text, or from class discussion.
