Garrison, Jim
Science and Education, v6 n6 p543-54 Nov 1997
One influential view of constructivism in science and mathematics educational research and practice is that of Ernst von Glasersfeld. It is a peculiarly subjectivist form of constructivism that should not be attractive to educators concerned with objectivity. Presents an example of a social constructivist alternative from pragmatic philosopher John Dewey. (Author/PVD)
