Giliberto M. (2014) Constructivism, overview. In: Teo T. (ed.) Encyclopedia of critical psychology. Springer, New York: 311–315. Fulltext at
Excerpt: Constructivism is an epistemological approach based on the assumption that knowledge, every-thing that is known, does not prescind from an observer but is actively construed: what we con-sider reality corresponds with our experience and, consequently, with our knowledge of it. This way of thinking is absolutely revolutionary with respect to a millenary philosophical tradition (Warren, 1998), which prompts us to assume that, if an action, a notion, or a strategy leads to a previewed or wished effect, this success necessarily shows some aspects, some elements of an independent reality. In order to know the world we need only collect a sufficient number of elements and “facts.”
