Even Higher Learning Takes Place by Doing: From Postmodern Critique to Pragmatic Action.
Kivinen, Osmo; Ristela, Pekka
Studies in Higher Education, v27 n4 p419-30 Oct 2002
Explores the postmodern critique of higher education, which presents a challenge to discard the contemplative conception of knowledge and promotes a pragmatic conception of inquiry. Discusses how higher education curricula, particularly scientific inquiry, can be renewed, taking into account this understanding of knowledge but also acknowledging the importance of practical measures.
