Abstract

The aim of this paper is to survey the following three contemporary developments in the conceptualisation of teaching-learning and of knowledge creation and to spell out the implications thereof for education: the rise of constructivist learning theories, inter-culturalism and the reality of multiple ways of thinking. Social action theory is applied in an effort to get a more over-arching understanding of these developments that have already been affecting education worldwide. The last part of the article is devoted to a transcendental critique of these developments in an effort to arrive at an appropriate reformational-educational response to them.

Die doel van hierdie artikel is om 'n oorsig te bied van die volgende drie hedendaagse ontwikkelinge in die konseptualisering van onderrig-leer en van kennisskepping, en om die implikasies daarvan vir die onderwys uit te spel: die opkoms van konstruktivistiese leerteorieë, inter-kulturalisme en die werklikheid dat mense op verskillende maniere dink. Die sosiale aksieteorie word aangewend om 'n meer oorkoepelende greep te verkry op hierdie ontwikkelinge wat alreeds heelwat invloed op onderwys oor die hele wêreld begin uitoefen het. Die laaste deel van die artikel word afgestaan aan transendentale kritiek op hierdie ontwikkelinge in 'n poging om 'n gepaste reformatories-opvoedkundige respons daarop te formuleer.
