There are four problems in Dr. Ye Bo’s article “The Choice of Curriculum Knowledge: from ‘Whose’ to ‘How Can It Be Possible’”. The first one is that knowledge is not clearly defined. The second one is that he does not realize the implicit assumption of curriculum is the legitimacy of knowledge. The third one is the shift of focus in the discussion. The fourth one is that it does not touch upon the individual’s life in contemporary society. The reason is that the author fails to recognize that curriculum knowledge is always a closed and exclusive concept in the transformation from “what” to “who”, then to “how possible”. In the era of individualization, we need a competitive view of knowledge and a view of education that can support the self care of individual, maintain the openness of curriculum knowledge, especially the methodological knowledge of individual self care in order to improve their ability to deal with uncertainty.
