Rousseau D. (2014) The Promise and Prospects of Second-Order Science. Constructivist Foundations 10(1): 37–38. Fulltext at
Open peer commentary on the article “Second-Order Science: Logic, Strategies, Methods” by Stuart A. Umpleby. Upshot: I support Umpleby’s advocacy for second-order science. I argue that the prospects are more optimistic than a superficial reading of Umpleby would suggest. I also argue that Umpleby’s proposals imply that radical constructivism and critical realism will evolve towards consilience.
