Epistemology and Networking Theories
Kidron, Ivy
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v91 n2 p149-163 Feb 2016
A theoretical reflection on epistemology is presented. The important role of epistemological analysis in research in mathematics education is discussed. I analyze the epistemological evolution as a consequence of the changes in the mathematical culture and demonstrate how the epistemological analysis is tightly linked to the cultural dimension. Then I analyze the connection between epistemology and networking of theories. Different meanings of the word "epistemic" are observed as well as the role of epistemology in the networking of theories.
