Désautels J., Garrison J. & Fleury S. C. (1998) Critical-constructivism and the sociopolitical agenda. In: Larochelle M., Bednarz N. & Garrison J. (eds.) Constructivism and education. Cambridge University Press, New York NY: 253–270. Fulltext at
Excerpt: In this chapter we would like to stress the contingency of the socially constructed world along with the social and political consequences of reifying and decontextualizing knowledge so as to make it appear necessary, indubitable, and unalterable. We want to develop a critical-constructivist stance toward the production and ownership of knowledge, in particular scientific knowledge, in society at large. We will examine some of the issues of power and social regulation involved in the social production of knowledge.
