Reflections on the Taxonomy: Its Past, Present, and Future


by David R. Krathwohl 1994

In this chapter, let us briefly look at the past, present, and future of the Taxonomy. We will seek to learn from the past, using the Taxonomy as a case study of a heuristic framework. By reviewing the process of developing and disseminating it, we can reveal what might contribute to a heuristic's success and what generalizations we can draw from this experience. Sinclair also inquired about "the scientific process" of building taxonomies.
