Delia J. (1977) Constructivism and the study of human communication. Quarterly Journal of Speech 63(1): 66–83. Fulltext at
In a recent analysis of the credibility concept, I employed a position emphasizing the central role of interpretive processes in human interaction. That perspective, labeled constructivism, is further elaborated here with attention to its implications for the conduct of communication research and the development of theoretic understanding of human communication. The analysis first sketches the essential commitments of the constructivist view, proceeds to an exploration of constructivism’s implications for the variable analytic tradition in communication research, and concludes with some general comments concerning theory development in the study of human communication.
