Duncker, L., Sander, W., Surkamp, C. (ed.): Perspektivenvielfalt im Unterricht (Multi-Perspectivity of Teaching, Stuttgart, 2005)
The principle of multi-perspectivity ranks among the modern and interdisciplinary valid principles of didactics. It is not only aiming at unfolding topics in a manifold manner, thus making it interesting, but it also strives to make connections to important philosophical, epistemological, and democratic-political rationales of learning. Learning is a constructive act of seeing and recognizing, of looking for and finding contexts, which may be stimulated by multi-perspectivity and be extended towards educational processes.
This book picks up the current debate of the various didactic disciplines and takes it further. Thus, it overcomes the additive co-existence of school subjects and presents ideas for a modern understanding of didactics, which has the potential of cross-linking teaching demands, while deepening the latter and also extending it in an enriching manner.
