Dell’Aversano C. (2008) Beyond dream and reality: Surrealism as reconstruction. Journal of Constructivist Psychology 21(4): 328-342.
Through an analysis of some key theoretical texts of historical Surrealism, this article elucidates the connection between the theory and practice of artistic Surrealism and the Kellyan concept of reconstruction. Its main thesis is that Surrealism originates in a reconstruction of the most superordinate construct in both Western aesthetics and Western ontology—the construct real-unreal—and that the ultimate aim of Surrealist poetics is to provoke a similar reconstruction in the audience.
