Play as a Quest for Vocation.
Adelman, Clem
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v24 n2 p139-51 Mar-Apr 1992
Argues for an understanding of play as a flux between the imagination and attempts to test consequences of "what if" questions. Discusses leading educational theorists' views of the role of play. Suggests that school authority which reduces creative play closes off children's means of finding answers to some vocational questions. (SG)
