Many ideas in the pages above are an extension of my PhD dissertation which is
a unifying synthesis of ideas (mainly from scientists and philosophers, but also from
sociologists, psychologists, historians, and myself) into a model of scientific method, and
an application of this model for the integrative analysis of a creative science-inquiry classroom.

I've also made LINK-PAGES with my summaries of important ideas (about
  thinking, learning, and teaching) plus links to pages written by other authors: 
This website for Whole-Person Education has TWO KINDS OF LINKS:
an ITALICIZED LINK keeps you inside a page, moving you to another part of it, and
 a NON-ITALICIZED LINK opens another page.  Both keep everything inside this window, 
so your browser's BACK-button will always take you back to where you were.
