Contents: Radical constructivism is a theory of knowing that provides a pragmatic approach to questions about reality, truth, language, and human understanding. It breaks with the philosophical tradition and proposes a conception of knowledge that focuses on experiential fit rather than metaphysical truth. It claims to be a useful approach, not the revelation of a timeless world. The ten chapters of this book present different facets in and elegantly written and thoroughly argued account of this epistemological position, providing a profound analysis of its central concepts. Indexed.
