Seductive Illusions: Von Glasersfeld and Gergen on Epistemology and Education


by Luise Prior McCarty & Thomas A. Schwandt ó 2000

In this chapter we focus exclusively on the works of Ernst von Glasersfeld and Kenneth Gergen as exemplary representatives of psychological and social versions of constructivist epistemology, respectively (or, more commonly, radical constructivism and social constructionism). Radical constructivism and social constructionism represent two of the most influential and well-articulated versions of constructivist thinking in the current educational literature.
