Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We briefly comment on different perspectives on (1) the role of mathematics education theories; (2) the issue of plurality and healthy heterogeneity versus consolidation; (3) underlying inquiry systems or the implicit role of philosophy in theories of mathematics education. This paper also outlines developments within the European research scene on theory usage in mathematics education research, which complement the discussion at the 29th PME research forum in Melbourne.
