Fromberg, Doris Pronin – Complicity: An International Journal of Complexity and Education, 2017
There are similar, non-linear complex dynamical systems that underlie the epigenetic development of young children.

Four main dimensions are considered: (a) inquiry-based rather than discipline-based; (b)…
