Universalism, Multiculturalism, and Science Education.
Irzik, Gurol
Science Education, v85 n1 p71-73 Jan 2001
Describes the division of universalists and multiculturalists over the question of the nature of science. Universalists maintain that science has a universal essence and western modern science is the paradigm example of such science. Multiculturalists appeal to the disunity of science thesis to undermine the view that all sciences must have a universal common core. (SAH)
