Dichotomies or Binoculars: Reflections on the Papers by Steffe and Thompson and by Lerman

Thomas E. Kieren 

March 2000, Volume 31, Issue 2, Page 228

Abstract:
Mathematics education in schools can be viewed either as primarily a sociocultural phenomenon or as a nurturing of the individual's mathematical development.   However, instead of taking the dichotomous view, contrasting the Vygotskian and the Pigetian perspectives, one may see the two as separate "truths," providing different lenses through which to attain a more complete reciprocal embodied view of mathematics education.
