Kessels, Jos. P. A. M.; Korthagen, Fred A. J.
Educational Researcher, v25 n3 p17-22 Apr 1996
Explores the relationship between theory and practice in education, discusses the characteristics of the different types of rationality, that is, episteme (scientific understanding) versus phronesis (practical wisdom), and examines the consequences for teacher education of the shift from episteme to phronesis. A revaluation of practical knowledge is proposed, including an alternative view of the relationship between theory and practice. (GR)
