In all of these traditions there is a cause-effect,sequential, logical, deterministic, and controllable view of the world’s systems. Whyshould teaching and learning be any different? Perhaps they aren’t, but newapproaches to understanding complex cognitive processes have recently emerged thatmay offer a better understanding of learning.
