Abstract

[The complexities of learners and of learning are explored in greater detail using Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Systems Theory and other concepts from systems theory. Diversity is examined closely, with attention to Aristotle’s eudaimonistic conception of what it means to develop as a person, with additional ideas from Dewey. The concept of unique potential is offered to help understand and to value individual variations among students.]
