Richards J. (2014) Going Beyond Novelty: Innovation as a Market Process. Constructivist Foundations 9(3): 438–439. Fulltext at
Open peer commentary on the article “Learning How to Innovate as a Socio-epistemological Process of Co-creation: Towards a Constructivist Teaching Strategy for Innovation” by Markus F. Peschl, Gloria Bottaro, Martina Hartner-Tiefenthaler & Katharina Rötzer. Upshot: Peschl et al. argue that innovation, or the creation of sustainable change in the market, is a natural topic to be understood from a radical constructivist perspective and is similar in structure to von Glasersfeld’s theory of learning. I argue that this is an accurate and interesting extension of the theory, but that their understanding of innovation needs to be extended to consider the viability of the innovation in the market. It is only in the context of the market that the innovation is perceived as novel, or that it can be understood as sustainable.
