Theory of Education

David Turner

    Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


    To date, theory in Education Studies has been dominated by a particular view of what should count as 'scientific' theory. David Turner argues that this approach does not necessarily provide a firm foundation for policy planning and professional activity. Using examples from linear programming, game theory, decision theory and chaos theory, he demonstrates how certain insights from modern developments in the social sciences, for example, can be used to stimulate more rewarding debate amongst educational researchers.
