Kuhn did not deny that there is progress in science, but he denied that it is progress toward anything.  He often used the metaphor of biological evolution: scientific progress for him was like evolution as described by Darwin, a process driven from behind, rather than pulled toward some fixed goal to which it grows ever closer.
