Instrumentality, Hermeneutics and the Place of Science in the School Curriculum.
Donnelly, James
Science and Education, v11 n2 p135-53 Mar 2002
Examines some key characteristics of science under the headings of elimination of the personal, demarcation from ethics, and denial of reflexivity. Relates these characteristics to an instrumental criterion of knowing which is pervasive in science. Suggests that there are severe limits to the introduction of a more personal, interpretative, and humane dimension to the science curriculum. (Author/MM)
