Research Ends and Teaching Ends in the Anthropological Theory of the Didactic
Gascón, Josep; Nicolás, Pedro
For the Learning of Mathematics, v39 n2 p42-47 2019
In the first part of the dialogue between theories, which gave rise to a paper in this journal, we discussed the role played by normativity in didactics. In this work, with the aim of taking a step forward in this dialogue, we state explicitly some of the postulates of the anthropological theory of the didactic. They shape the object of study, the research ends and the kind of research results of this theory. Also, we will show that the didactic paradigm assumed by a theory (which is characterized by a position concerning what to study, how to study it, and what for) is the key notion which links the research activity to the normativity.
