An example; a model; a pattern.
A theory providing a unifying explanation for a set of phenomena in some field, which serves to suggest methods to test the theory and develop a fuller understanding of the topic, and which is considered useful until it is be replaced by a newer theory providing more accurate explanations or explanations for a wider range of phenomena.

A set of basic assumptions that outlines the universe of scientific inquiry, specifying both the concepts regarded as legitimate and the methods to be used in collecting and interpreting data.
The accepted perception about the way things are.
(n) a way of viewing the world about us. Occasionally new discoveries are made which require a paradigm shift, or a new way of looking at the world. Such shifts are initially rejected by the masses but eventually are accepted. Viewing the world as round as opposed to flat is an example of a paradigm shift.
The highest, most general level in a hierarchy of scientific intellectual structures. A paradigm is a generally accepted view of the nature of a scientific discipline.
In sociology the term denotes schools of sociological work, each of which is self-contained with its own methods and theories. In science the term denotes general ways of seeing the world, which dictate what kind of scientific work should be done and what kinds of theory are acceptable.
A way of thinking that's so widespread in a particular society that people hardly notice they think that way. A paradigm shift is a change in a paradigm - often not noticed till it's well under way. Paradigm shifts take years to happen.
a model, an example, a pattern or a mental pattern; something serving as an example or model of how things should be done. It is the makeup of an individual's, group's or nation's reality, of what their attention is focused on, and it lays out the map of how to get there from here. A paradigm defines what can be perceived, what is acceptable, and what is not acceptable.

(PAR·a·digm). A cognitive frame of reference consisting of a set of beliefs, assumptions, techniques, ideals, and research strategies that influences one’s observations, findings, conclusions, and interpretations. Passover (PASS·O·ver). From Hebrew pesah, pecach, pesach (PEH·sakh). Anciently Passover was Abib, or Nisan, 14 in the Hebrew calendar and immediately followed by the seven-day Feast of Unleavened Bread. By the first-century Passover could also refer to the festival as well ( Luke 22:1 cf., Ezekiel 45:21). Observed at home, rather than at the central sanctuary or in the synagogue, this family banquet commemorated the deliverance of ancient Israel from its bondage in Egypt ( Exodus 12). Anciently the seating was oriental style with the host and guests seated on pillows. As a festival celebrating freedom from slavery and captivity Jews kept the Passover annually as "a night to be observed for the LORD" ( Exodus 12:42 NASB).
a general agreement of belief of how the world works; what could be called ``common sense''.

An acquired way of thinking about something that shapes thought and action in ways that are both conscious and unconscious. Paradigms are essential because they provide a culturally shared model for how to think and act, but they can present major obstacles to adopting newer, better approaches.
An example or pattern. in the sense of T. S. Kuhn (1970), scientific paradigms are general ways of seeing the world shared by members of a scientific community, and they provide models of acceptable ways in which problems can be solved.
Based upon the philosophy of Thomas Kuhn, a paradigm is a world-view that reflects certain assumptions, both implicit and explicit, about the social world, what constitutes a scientific problem or issue, what the appropriate methods of investigation are, and what constitutes appropriate solutions and standards of proof.

Literally a paradigm is simply a model or pattern. In software development it usually applies to some universal practice or large-scale approach to development. OO development, functional programming, structured programming, and relational programming all represent different large-scale paradigms for developing software. Translation and elaboration represent different OO approaches to OO development. Employing getter/setter methods is an example of a practice paradigm.

(1) (Mertens, 2003). A conceptual model of a person's worldview, complete with the assumptions that are associated with that view. (2) (Caracelli and Green, 2003) paradigms are social constructions, historically and culturally embedded discourse practices, and therefore neither inviolate nor unchanging. Back to the top
a paradigm is a theoretical framework within which research problems are formulated and answered. Different paradigms construct different and usually incommensurable theoretical frameworks for understanding and investigation, and are often at struggle with each other. See Thomas Kuhn's 'The Structure of Scientific Revolutions'.
A pattern of thinking that matches accepted theories and scientific practices of the day.
The framework, model or pattern which influences our perceptions and affects our judgment and decision making.
a pattern; used to describe a way of seeing the world or world view
A model, or theory or conceptual system. In current use: a way of seeing or thinking which often serves to distort or limit our ability to receive or understand new information or learnings. Senge calls such models of thinking and perception "mental models" in his book the fifth discipline.
A way of thinking about a given subject that defines how one views events, relationships, ideas, etc. within the boundaries of that subject.
A paradigm is a pattern/mode/description of a given situation. It can be thought of as the force behind the unwritten rules of society or a particular discipline. A paradigm shift is a movement from the accepted paradigm, to a new one. It applies to subject matter fields, where the prevailing thought can be described by a brief statement. When shifts occur it calls the prevailing wisdom into question, and when there is sufficient evidence to have wide debate on a topic, a paradigm shift is likely underway.

A model or pattern which is a conceptual explanation of a complex system.
A model that provides a framework for interpreting observations.

In the behavioural sciences, e.g. Psychology, Biology, Neurosciences, an experimental paradigm is an experimental setup (i.e. a way to conduct a certain type of experiment) that is defined by certain fine-tuned standards and often has a theoretical background. A paradigm in this technical sense, however, is not as strict a way of thinking as it is in the epistemological meaning.
