"... which date back..." "society" (no "the") "by demonstrating" (by indicates method) Good luck!

... a couple more corrections to add to the ones Michael has pointed out: "Kuhn's work" (singular) - We only use 'works' for works of art or literature "a tremendous impact" (not 'an')

"by" is the only coorect choice. It would also be better to use the word "published" instead of dated. --- "..., published in the second half of ...." uses of "dated": "This theory of gravity dates back to the 1600's with the publication of Sir Isaac Newton's work." "This bone has been dated as being from the first century B.C."
