On Teaching Biochemistry: A Heuristic-Teleonomic Approach.
Mantovani, Bernardo
Biochemical Education, v23 n3 p135-37 Jul 1995
Argues against the merely descriptive presentation frequently used in teaching biochemistry and in favor of a constructivist approach called heuristic-teleonomic, which unites the process of discovery with adaptation to functional ends. Discusses difficulties inherent to the nature of biochemistry, including the conflict between acquiring scientific knowledge and the nature of teaching as a humanistic activity. (PVD)
