Slezak P. (2000) A critique of radical social constructivism. In: Phillips D. C. (ed.) Constructivism in education: Opinions and second opinions on controversial issues. National Society for the Study of Education, Chicago: 91–126. Fulltext at
Excerpt: The dispute concerning Social Constructivism has emerged from being an isolated and esoteric epistemological debate among relatively few academic scholars to being a notorious and widespread public scandal. Challenges to traditional conceptions of science which severely polarized philosophers, historians and sociologists have erupted into heated public disputes – the so-called Science Wars. The issues at stake concern the most fundamental questions about the nature of science, and inevitably these controversies have become prominent among educators where a variety of constructivist doctrines have become entangled.
