Abstract

Dit het 'n aanvaarde feit onder opvoedkundiges en opvoeders geword dat daar 'n sekere verband tussen die opvoeder se lewens- en wêreldbeskouing en sy of haar pedagogiese teorie en praktyk bestaan. Daar het egter 'n paar probleme opgeduik sedert die opkoms van die postfundamentisme, wat beskou kan word as 'n reaksie teen Verligtingsfundamentisme. Post-postfundamentisme het ook betreklik onlangs sy verskyning gemaak in reaksie teen sowel die fundamentisme as die postfundamentisme, ook deur sommiges die postmodernisme genoem. Aangesien hierdie drie benaderings tot opvoeding en onderwys gelyklopend skyn te wees, vind opvoedkundiges en opvoeders dit moeilik om keuses te maak met betrekking tot hulle benadering tot opvoeding en onderwys. Op grond van 'n vergelyking tussen hierdie drie breë benaderings word die gevolgtrekking bereik dat die mees onlangse ontwikkeling, naamlik die post-postfundamentisme, die geskikste benadering vir opvoeders sal wees, aangesien dit daarop gemik is om die tekortkominge van die fundamentisme sowel as die postfundamentisme te omseil.


Educators and educationists seem to have reached considerable consensus about the fact that there is a direct relationship between the educator's (for instance parent or teacher's) life-concept and how she approaches the education of children. Olthuis (2012:1) summarises this consensus as follows:
Now [in 2012], the notion of a worldview is both commonly recognised and broadly deployed in a wide variety of academic as well as non-academic contexts throughout the world. With the growing realisation that there are no innocent, unbiased ways of looking in the world, that everyone wears glasses and looks at the world through a particular lens, window or frame, the idea of worldview has become common currency.
Educators of the early 21st century find themselves caught up in a postmodern world in which they have to tread carefully regarding this relationship between their life-concept and education.
