Alienation and Fetish in Science Education.
Beach, Dennis
Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, v43 n2 p157-72 Jun 1999
Reexamines materials from an ethnographic study of science-education laboratory work in a teacher-educator course through the lens of three Marxist concepts: alienation, reification, and commodity fetish. Concludes that the potential for generating criticism of science in teacher education is squandered because of a fetishized notion of science. (Author/SLD)
