Ockham's Razor and Plato's Beard.
Orton, Robert E.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v26 n3 p204-29 May 1995
Response to an earlier article in JRME in which the authors propose a constructivist alternative to the representational view of mind. Argues that the original article misinterprets the postepistemological perspective, confuses ontological and epistemological issues, and mistakes the pragmatic force of the constructivist argument.
