About Descartes: Uses and Misuses
Sages, Roger
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v6 n3 p595-609 Sep 2011
In this Forum paper I examine how Orlander and Wickman represent Descartes philosophy, noting that while it might be tempting to apply one facet of a philosopher's argument, such as Descartes separation of mind and body, by doing that we do not capture the development of his thinking. I propose the phenomenological philosophy of Edmund Husserl can assist researchers to move beyond simple dichotomies.
