Constructivism and Science Education: Some Epistemological Problems.
Matthews, Michael R.
Journal of Science Education and Technology, v2 n1 p359-70 Mar 1993
Outlines the significant influence of constructivism in contemporary science and mathematics education and emphasizes the central role that epistemology plays in constructivist theory and practice. It is claimed that constructivism is basically a variant of old-style empiricist epistemology, which has its origins in Aristotle's individualist and sense-based theory of knowledge. (PR)
