Doll attracts relationships one of the rules complex in chaos conception, Piagetian epistemology, cognitive conception, and the paintings of Dewey and Whitehead. during this e-book at the post-modern point of view at the curriculum, the writer asserts that the post-modern version of natural switch isn't really inevitably linear, uniform, measured and decided, yet is one among emergence and development, made attainable via interplay, transaction, disequilibrium and consequent equilibrium. Transformation, now not a suite path, the e-book argues, could be the rule of thumb, and open-endedness is a vital characteristic of the post-modern framework. within the publication, the writer envisages a curriculum within which the teacher's function isn't really causal, yet transformative. The curriculum isn't the race direction, however the trip itself; metaphors could be extra valuable than common sense in producing discussion locally; and educative function, making plans and evaluate is versatile and interested in technique, no longer product.

“Scholarly, but direct and to the purpose, [Doll’s] principles make feel to entrance line educators within the actual global of today’s schools.”
—Kenneth Graham, Seaford Union unfastened institution District
