Atomism, Pragmatism, Holism.
Miller, John P.
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v1 n3 p175-96 Spr 1986
Examines three world views influencing curriculum development--atomism (underpinning competency-based education), pragmatism (promoting inquiry-based approaches), amd holism (associated with confluent or Waldorf education). Holism embodies the perennial philosophy and attempts to integrate cognitive, affective, and transpersonal dimensions, avoiding the fragmentation and value-neutrality of other approaches. Includes 63 references. (MLH)
