This book has its origins in a special issue of the journal Science & Education (Volume 18 Numbers 6-7, 2009). The essay by Costas Skordoulis - 'Science and Worldviews in the Marxist Tradition' - did not appear in that special issue due to a mistake in production scheduling. It was published in an earlier issue of the journal (Volume 17 Number 6, 2008), but has been included in this book version of the special issue.
