Ernest P. (2010) Reflections on theories of learning. In: Sriraman B. & English L. (eds.) Theories of mathematics education. Springer, Berlin: 39–47. Fulltext at
Four philosophies of learning are contrasted, namely ‘simple’ constructivism, radical constructivism, enactivism and social constructivism. Their underlying explanatory metaphors and some of their strengths and weaknesses are contrasted, as well as their implications for teaching and research. However, it is made clear that none of these ‘implications’ is incompatible with any of the learning philosophies, even if they sit more comfortably with one of them.
