Ecological Theory and Conventional Science: Irreconcilable Differences?
Johnson, G. M.
Canadian Journal of Special Education, v7 n2 p153-63 1991
This discussion of ecological approaches to special education suggests that the relative neglect of the ecological approach is partially a result of the apparent incompatibility between ecological theory and conventional scientific approaches. It is suggested that ecological theory and positivism may be reconciled by broadening and developing educational constructs and definitions of scientific validation. (Author/DB)
