English term or phrase: paradigm shift
(It refers to Kuhn's concept as formulated in The Structure of Scientific Revolutions.) The sentence is:

The overthrow of Ptolemaic cosmology by Copernican heliocentrism, and
the displacement of Newtonian mechanics by quantum physics and general
relativity, are both examples of major paradigm shifts.

cambio de paradigma
Explanation:
El libro al que te refieres ya ha sido traducido como "La estructura de las revoluciones científicas" editado por el Fondo de Cultura Económica, Colección Breviarios y en México se consigue fácilmente, por desgracia no lo tengo conmigo aquí para darte la cita completa, pero estoy seguro que esa es la traducción que emplea. Mucha suerte. GFS

Transformaciones de paradigma (s)


Explanation:
We are talking about revolutions and radical changes.
This term id also used in Manufacturing on Continuous Improvement Implementations. In this case, we talk about cambios, because it involves incremental change or improvement.
When the term implies radical change, revolutions and Reeingeneering, that's a tranformation.

cambios paradigmáticos [de importancia]


Explanation:
Como bien se sabe, el conocimiento humano avanza por medio de un sistema de conceptos que se oponen (conocidos como paradigmas). A medida que una teoría se desgasta, otra va creciendo y la opinión académica se acerca al otro lado del péndulo. Pensé que el adjetivo "paradigmático" era más idiomático que "de paradigma". Buena suerte.

Explanation:
In a different context, but meaning the same, Steven Covey's bestseller "7 habits of highly effective people" also talks about paradigm shift (a key concept in the book). In the Spanish version of the book, this is translated as "cambio de paradigma".
Un saludo.

Cambios Fundamentales


Explanation:
Instead of hovering around the word ' paradigm" it would be much clear to use the phrase " cambios fundamentales" which would convey the same meaning.
