Conceptions of Curriculum Eisner deﬁned six diﬀerent conceptions of curriculum, which are somewhat in conﬂict with each other (1997); it is important for educators to take a position on which conception or combinations of conceptions they espouse. Eisner’s conceptions are: 1. Religious orthodoxy, which refers to the inﬂuence of some dogmatic beliefs on the ways in which schools function—inﬂuence that is not strictly religious in the church-related sense. 2. Rational humanism, focusing on scientiﬁc method, reasoning, and dialectic; this approach is not widespread in America at this time.
