Abstract

Informed by socio-cultural-historical theory, this thesis argues that scientific creativity can emerge from the discernment of a spiritual connection with the organisms studied. It is suggested that by engaging students in the essentially relational world of nature, a transformative science education, incorporating both science and spirituality, is possible and desirable.
