Contemporarycurriculum reform, teaching and educational leadership are to an increasingdegree challenged by similar transnational policy developments in Europe, Asia,Africa and the Americas. As a consequence, curriculum theorizing has been verymuch debated the past decade, but conceptual progress has been limited. The aimof this article is to contribute with a new opening to the field of curriculumresearch, primarily by analyzing the strengths and limitations of anon-affirmative theory of education. This position is argued to provide a moretheoretically coherent paradigm for a systematic treatment of the manydimensions involved, especially as it frames the German-Nordic paradigm ofDidaktik, and adds to it. Non-affirmative education also moves beyond a currereor Bildung oriented conceptualization, as well as more instrumental andideology-critical positions frequent in the English speaking cultures.
