ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the determinants that facilitate or hamper curriculum change. These determinants are directly related to the purposes of education. The purposes can be cultural transmission, environmental adaptation, and total personality development. Transmission leads to adaptation and adaptation to personality fulfillment. Conversely, the cause of adaptation is enhanced by personality fulfillment and it later enhances the cause of transmission. However, the objective of total personality fulfillment is debatable. The values that a culture live by help in establishing a curriculum. Education's future course will be decided by the decision that the culture renders on the current value debate. Humanism for all versus humanism for some and the cognitive man versus the mentally-healthy man are the two emotion-arousing issues which are included in the debate.
