Seven Curricular Landscapes offers a holistic presentation and critique of what the author considers to be the seven major types of curricula. This book, which is suitable for both upper-division and graduate education courses, differs from previous holistic approaches in that it closely considers the holistic implications of postmodernism, adds new categories and terms to the holistic repertoire, includes the latest developments in transpersonal theory, examines the Existentialist curriculum as a spiritual phenomenon, and discusses the curricular implications of both Eastern and Western spirituality.

Page 13 - ... the sense of hearing should always be conjoined with that of sight, and the tongue should be trained in combination with the hand. The subjects that are taught should not merely be taught orally, and thus appeal to the ear alone, but should be pictorially illustrated, and thus develop the imagination by the help of the eye.
