Fields C. (2018) First-Person Science is Third Person and Vice Versa. Constructivist Foundations 13(2): 240–241. Fulltext at
Open peer commentary on the article “Excavating Belief About Past Experience: Experiential Dynamics of the Reflective Act” by Urban Kordeš & Ema Demšar. Upshot: Science requires memory, but memory is constructive. Kordeš and Demšar appeal to historical constraints on memory to address this paradox. Yet history, even an imagined history, involves a third-person perspective. I suggest that a third-person perspective is required by any science, even a “first-person” science.
