World-View Entrapment: Moral-Ethical Implications for Gifted Education.
Ambrose, Don
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v23 n2 p159-86 Win 2000
This article explores the moral-ethical implications of the mechanistic world view and related issues such as technological determinism, social Darwinism, and androcentrism. It finds that educational approaches reinforced by the mechanistic world view include positivistic approaches to curriculum, instruction, and research. Recommendations for developing root-metaphorical influences in gifted education are offered. (Contains extensive references.) (Author/DB)
