Relativism Revisited: A Response to Manfred Stanley's Criticism of the Sociology of Knowledge as a Theoretical Basis for an Alternative Pedagogy


by C. A. Bowers 1981

The author responds to Manfred Stanley's criticisms. Professor Stanley has raised issues that are likely to remain as "unfinished business" for anyone considering the purposes of public education. They are difficult issues to deal with because they force us to a deeper level of analysis where we cannot simply fall back on diagnoses and answers that reflect the populist, millenarianist, and romanticist tendencies that we have come to associate as necessary elements in radical thinking.
