Curriculum Visions challenges the singular, guiding vision that has dominated Western educational thought for the past four centuries, from Peter Ramus to Ralph Tyler and beyond. Influenced by the spirit of John Dewey,
Curriculum Visions moves beyond his ghost to see what he never saw – a playful integration of the scientific, the storied, and the spiritful. In so doing,
Curriculum Visions asks each of us to develop our own curricular vision, based on the logic of reason, the personality and culture of society, and the awesomeness and mystery of creation.
