Contested Terrain or Unified Project? 'The Nature of Science' in the National Curriculum for England and Wales.
Donnelly, James
International Journal of Science Education, v23 n2 p181-95 Feb 2001
Discusses treatment of 'the nature of science' in the National Curriculum of England and Wales. Offers analysis based mainly on texts of the various policy documents that have been produced since 1989. Claims that two conflicting versions of the nature of science can be detected within these documents, one essentially empiricist, the other stressing social and cultural influences on science. (Contains 33 references.) (Author/ASK)
