Editorial Reviews

"A wonderful, interdisciplinary collection....The three introduction pieces are thought-provoking, and should not be overlooked becasue they provide an excellent mapping of how each specific domain is understood and articulated here....In many points, the encyclopedia is user-friendly....aremarkable and precious reference book that is essential for any academic library. Moreover, I could hardly find a feeble text or any kind of jargon anywhere in the book."--Yves Laberge, International Journal of Science Education
