Schmidt S. J. (2000) Ernst von Glasersfeld’s philosophy of language: Roots, concepts, perspectives. In: Steffe L. P. & Thompson P. W. (eds.) Radical constructivism in action: Building on the pioneering work of Ernst von Glasersfeld. Falmer Press, London: 23–33. Fulltext at
From the conclusion: a comprehensive philosophy of language and communication would be well advised to observe and to analyze its subjects under a fourfold perspective, viz. a biological, a psychological, a sociological, and a culture-theoretical one, integrating genetic and structural points of view, respectively. The man who has paved the way to this important insight is Ernst Glasersfeld. He has been the trailblazer out of the behaviorist desert into cognitive constructivist pastures with inspiring new perspectives, and an abundance of new interesting problems. I think Ernst Glasersfeld has proved that radical constructivism is much more than one approach among others: it is a philosophy which opens up the way to a better, more human way of living.
