Abstract: Driven by the highlighted multiple meaning of text and the emerging postmodernism, the combination of curriculum and text has created a new dynamic. Consequently, people call for a pluralistic interpretation of curriculum text. Nevertheless, interpretation of curriculum from the text involves some restrictions hidden in the monistic interpretation. Therefore, interpretation of curriculum needs to take into consideration the duality of both curriculum and text in dealing with the “monistic” and “pluralistic” approaches.

Key words: curriculum text, interpretation, monism, pluralism
