The Nature of Nature: Chinese Culture and Science Education.
Slay, Jill
This paper examines the concept of nature from the perspective of Chinese history and culture, and is partially based on personal experiences. The perspective used to understand science education in the culture is one that science itself maintains a culture-independent existence. Students in China worry about the lifestyle of the West, however they have no concept of Western culture and values. Concludes that Western knowledge and influence has an important place in the science curriculum and education in China. (Contains 17 references.) (YDS)
