Now they were presented as separate entities, but I am curious about the grand scheme of things, about the developments in thinking taking place and how one influences the other. Also the quotations at the start of each chapter seemed to be chosen quite randomly, as a means to brighten up the de Nice overview on educational thinkers. Interesting, easy to understand, concise.
