    This is a short treatise that challenges the theory of knowledge supporting contemporary educational practice. This prevailing theory of knowledge holds that schools and teachers should be responsible for transmiting to students a fixed body of knowledge (educational goals). Perkinson challenges this theory with another developed by Karl Popper entitled evolutionary epistemology. This view holds that the teacher's job should not be to force predetermined knowledge (learning goals) into students' heads, but to help them expand and correct their existing knowledge.
