520    Are the images of science held by learners the same across
       cultures? What are the implications for science education?
       This book explores the nature of science from a cultural 
       perspective. Located in the Chinese cultural context, the 
       book examines the nexus between characteristics of Chinese
       thinking and the understanding of the nature of science in
       Chinese traditional culture. The dramatic cultural change 
       as a result of the introduction of Western culture was 
       accompanied by the dramatic reconstruction of the image of
       science. The Chinese science education echoes the 
       understanding of the nature of science in each cultural 
       historical period. Reflecting the tension and dilemmas of 
       understanding the nature of science at the policy making 
       level, the images of science held by Chinese science 
       teachers represent a mixture of influences by values and 
       beliefs that are embedded in the imported science and by 
       Chinese native cultural beliefs. The book concludes with 
       suggestions of change of practice in science education for
       a more realistic image of science not only within the 
       field of education but also in society at large.
