Justi, Rosaria; Gilbert, John K.
Science and Education, v8 n3 p287-307 May 1999
A greater role for the history and philosophy of science in science education can only be realized if it is based on both a credible analytical approach--such as that of Lakatos--and if the evolution of a sufficient number of major themes in science is known in suitable detail. Considers chemical kinetics as an example topic. Contains 62 references. (Author/WRM)
