The development o f learning theories has continued since the acceptance o f constructivism with enactivism being one emerging theory. Some influences on this development include criticisms of constructivism, ideas about Cartesian dichotomies, consideration of non- cognitive knowing, notions from phenomenology, and the neural biological work which emphasises evolutionary or Darwinian notions and systems theory. This paper, based on the literature,puts some ofthese interrelated influences together to introduce enactivism.
