Two Theories of "Theory" in Mathematics Education: Using Kuhn and Lakatos to Examine Four Foundational Issues.
Orton, Robert E.
For the Learning of Mathematics, v8 n2 p36-43 Jun 1988
The ideas of Kuhn and Lakatos are used to study four issues in mathematics education related to values, units of analysis, theory of mind, and nature of mathematical entities. The goal is to determine whether differences between the assumptions are best understood in Kuhnian or Lakatosian terms. (MNS)
