Bet You Would Not Call a Holistic Plumber
Mahon, Robert Lee
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v81 n2 p90-92 Nov-Dec 2007
In this article, the author examines the misuse of the idea of holistic education. Western culture--and not just science and technology, but finance, politics, arts, crafts, and professions too--is not built on holistic insight or understanding, but on analytic thinking. Therefore, logically, successful teaching in all of the above must be created on the basis of analysis.
