Dilemmas in Examining Understanding of Nature of Science in Vietnam
Hatherley-Greene, Peter
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v12 n2 p271-274 Jun 2017
The two authors, Thi Phuong Thao-Do and Chokchai Yuenyong, explored the Nature of Science as it is understood in Vietnam, a fast-developing "ancient" and modern country which continues to be shaped by uniquely Asian social norms and values. Upon reviewing their paper, I observed strong parallels to the country, the United Arab Emirates, where I have lived and worked for 20 years. In this forum piece, I described several areas of similarity and one striking area of difference between the two societies.
