Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In this contribution we discuss the six theses presented by Hans-Georg Steiner (1987), which were instrumental in the community becoming interested in theories and philosophies of mathematics education. We discuss overlooked aspects of this seminal paper particularly in light of recent developments in the field of mathematics education. Nearly 20 years later, we reflect on the development of Steiner's program for theory development and examine if any progress has been made at all on the open questions that Steiner (1987) posed to the community.
