Monist holists (of whom Kuhn is an example) will hold that normal science can only take place when one paradigm has achieved hegemonic status in the field.

I think there is a perfectly clear answer: scientific models of complex phenomena are necessarily partial and different models address different parts. I don’t see why this implies any lack of objectivity or rationality. We might wonder whether at some imagined end of inquiry the sum of all possible models will equate to the complete truth about a phenomenon.
