Deweyan Pragmatism and the Epistemology of Contemporary Social Constructivism.
Garrison, Jim
American Educational Research Journal, v32 n4 p716-40 Win 1995
It is argued that an epistemology that supports theories of situated cognition and social constructivism can be found in the tradition of John Dewey's pragmatism. Dewey's pragmatic social behaviorism is a powerful theory of learning that stresses the roles of labor, tools, and language as activities of enculturation. (SLD)
