Revising Science Teaching: Responding to Challenges of Health and Environmental Education
This final chapter is intended to bring together and discuss the contents of this book, which contain a variety of perspectives, styles, attitudes, and intentions of the authors. All the contributions are strongly framed by conceptual standards, which reflect the state-of-the-art in the field. As a result, the authors, who sometimes offer quite controversial standpoints, are able to introduce several key lines of reasoning and add profound new perspectives to each topic. In this concluding chapter, we do not intend to harmonize different positions but to gather together the various arguments and concepts and to use them to form an overall picture for the reader. We have decided to structure this chapter by reflecting the motifs and themes that can be found in one or another way in all contributions to the book. This list is by no means exhaustive, and neither is this overview, which, of course, cannot and does not want to oust the authors’ rich and multifaceted original contributions.
