It could be stated as challenging an existing order of knowledge and looking at it from another point of view in order to draw out a new perspective on the very same issue. This is prevalent throughout history. As an example, you can look at the theory that the Sun revolves the Earth and Galileo disproving that very theory.

TS Kuhn invented the term in his book The Structure of Scientific Revolutions.

He applied it when major beliefs in science (gravity, the planetary motion, etc) were challenged by new evidence; this evidence was rejected at first, but within a few years the new evidence became widely accepted, and unchallenged for centuries as the new paradigm.
