The Dialectic Nature of Technology and Holism: Use of Technology to Liberate Individuals with Learning Disabilities.
Poplin, Mary S.
Learning Disability Quarterly, v18 n2 p131-40 Spr 1995
This article explores the dialectic nature of technology and holism as an example of the way in which reductionism is embedded inside holistic principles. Factors that limit or enhance the activities of individuals with learning disabilities in school and elsewhere are examined, and the role of technology in compensating for and/or developing special talents is discussed.
