Indoctrination and science education

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsReference Entry

Abstract

Can students be trained to be excellent scientists purely, or failing that mainly, by means of indoctrination? And if not, what role, if any, should indoctrination play in science education? These are the main questions discussed in this entry. They are epistemic and pragmatic, rather than moral, in character.
