for the learning of mathematics

Ole Skovsmose - Vol. 31 Num. 3 (2011)
 Critique, generativity and imagination


Modern conceptions of critique express preoccupations with obtaining certainty and truth, with establishing foundations, and with linking knowledge and rationality. Modern conceptions of critique have been challenged, and critique has taken new formats. In particular critique has developed without demands of providing foundations for knowledge and proper directions of political actions. Critique can be associated with generativity and imagination which includes creative and, at times, surrealistic elements. Such features of critique are relevant for the further development for critical enterprises in general, and for the development of critical mathematics education in particular.
