Teaching Sciences: The Multicultural Question Revisited.
Stanley, William B.; Brickhouse, Nancy W.
Science Education, v85 n1 p35-49 Jan 2001
Summarizes the case for a universalist approach to science education. Examines the weaknesses of universalism within the limits of human cognitive capabilities in constraining what we understand about nature, a description of reality as a flux, and the disunity of science and the role of culturally different forms and social organization of research shaping the cognitive content of the sciences.
