Abstract: The study addressed the phenomenon according to which even educated adult individuals often confuse sensations received from physical objects (such as colour, sound, taste, weight, temperature) with physical properties of the objects that initiated these sensations. This means that in many cases scienti c education fails to achieve its goal, which is to create in an individual the physical-scie nti c view of the world. To examine this phenomenon four experiments were conducted with the aims to determine to wha… Show more

“…Another way to account for the distinction between the 'of cial' and the 'underground' representations of the world is to present it as a difference between expert and novice views (Larkin, 1983). It has been argued, for instance, that until the middle of the 18th century, even scientists were unable to distinguish between concepts of heat and temperature (Wiser & Carey, 1983), and the confusion between physical properties of objects and their perceptual qualities is overwhelming among contemporary children and adults (Subbotsky, 1997b). This shows that, in some important respects, contemporary school education fails to create a scienti c vision of the world in the students' mind.…”
