  • Burn Rateby Michael Wolff

    Simon & Schuster 2013; US$ 18.95

    Michael Wolff's wickedly funny chronicle of his rags-to-riches-to-rags adventure as a fledgling Internet entrepreneur exposes an industry powered by hype, celebrity, and billions of investment dollars -- and notably devoid of profit-making enterprises. As he describes his efforts to control his company's burn rate -- the amount of money the company... more...

  • Science Education from People for Peopleby Wolff-Michael Roth

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 53.95

  • Re/Structuring Science Educationby Wolff-Michael Roth

    Springer Netherlands 2009; US$ 181.15

    Since its beginnings, science education has been under the influence of psychological theories of knowing and learning, while in more recent years, social constructivist and sociological frameworks have also begun to emerge. With little work being done on showing how the perspectives of these separate approaches might be integrated, this work aims... more...

  • Language, Learning, Contextby Wolff-Michael Roth

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 54.95

    In what way do educators understand the language they use to make sense of the educational environment?

  • Geometry as Objective Science in Elementary School Classroomsby Wolff-Michael Roth

    Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 54.95

    This study examines the origins of geometry in and out of the intuitively given everyday lifeworlds of children in a second-grade mathematics class. These lifeworlds, though pre-geometric, are not without model objects that denote and come to anchor geometric idealities that they will understand at later points in their lives. Roth's analyses explain how... more...

  • Passibilityby Wolff-Michael Roth

    Springer Netherlands 2011; US$ 127.87

    Guided by concepts such as passion and undecidability, this book uses empirical studies and phenomenological analyses of knowing and learning science to argue that the ?constructivist metaphor? suppresses other modes of thinking about scientific learning. more...

  • First-Person Methodsby Wolff-Michael Roth

    SensePublishers 2012; US$ 37.30

    In the history of psychology, ?rst-person methods, such as introspection, have come into disrepute in favor of the experimental approach. Yet the results of ?rst-person research ? such as the famous studies provided by Maurice Merleau-Ponty in his Phenomenology of Perception ? have indeed produced knowledge subsequently ascertained by neuroscienti?c... more...

  • On Meaning and Mental Representationby Wolff-Michael Roth

    SensePublishers 2013; US$ 37.30

    This book is about language in STEM research and about how it is thought about: as something that somehow refers to something else not directly accessible, often «meaning», «mental representation», or «conception». Using the analyses of real data and analyses of the way certain concepts are used in the scientifi c literature, such as ?meaning,? this... more...

  • What More in/for Science Educationby Wolff-Michael Roth

    SensePublishers 2013; US$ 37.30

    What more is there in and for science education to do in terms of researching science lessons? A lot, the author suggests, if research turns away from studying science education extracting social facts using special methods, which journal articles require to state, to studying the work and methods by means of which participants themselves create their... more...
