Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to advocate that tenchcrs be encouraged nnd helped to develop an overt and deaf epistemological understanding of the methods and structure of science, i.e., the nature of science (NOS).

I also want to highlight some of the challenges faced in attempts to introduce NOS in inservice teacher education in Pakistan.
