Thickening the Discussion: Inspecting Constructivist Theories of Knowledge through a Jamesian Lens.
Woods, Braford S.; Murphy, P. Karen
Educational Theory, v52 n1 p43-59 Win 2002
Delineates the apparent, though unclaimed, intellectual relations between William James' philosophical and psychological writings and the constructivist sub-genres of social cognition, situated cognition, and radical constructivism, suggesting that James' work offers a clarity and inclusiveness of thought that predates the postulates of constructivism. The paper provides insights into the complexities of Jamesian theory and synopsizes these contemporary theories. (SM)
