Chiari G. & Nuzzo L. M. (1996) Psychological constructivism: A metatheoretical differentiation. Journal of Constructivist Psychology 9(3): 163–184.

In this article, we attempt to contribute to a systematization of the field by using the knowledge/reality relationship as a metatheoretical criterion of differentiation among the several psychological perspectives on personal knowledge. In doing so we fix certain terms to the different views of knowledge, suggesting their discriminative use. Brief references to the psychotherapeutic approaches based on the metatheoretical perspectives considered make clear their different implications at the applied level.
