AB - We propose a constructivist account of experiential geometry. Constructive geometry can be used to expose the experiential roots of relevant metric qualities, such as depths, lengths, and volumes, as well as location concepts. The challenge lies in the choice of concepts to consider as primitive vs. those to be constructed. It also lies in accounting for the relativity and finiteness of experiential space from the perspective of an observer. Following von Glasersfeld, geometrical concepts are constructed based on the human apparatus for guiding attention and by performing geometric comparisons relative to a reference frame of perceived point-like features.
