Fear of Knowledge: Against Relativism and Constructivism
Oxford University Press
The idea that science is just one more way of knowing the world and that there are other, radically different, yet equally valid ways, has taken deep root in academia. In Fear of Knowledge, Paul Boghossian tears these relativist theories of knowledge to shreds.

Constructivism in Ethics
Cambridge University Press
Are there such things as moral truths? How do we know what we should do? And does it matter? Constructivism states that moral truths are neither invented nor discovered, but rather are constructed by rational agents in order to solve practical problems. While constructivism has become the focus of many philosophical debates in normative ethics, meta-ethics and action theory, its importance is still to be fully appreciated. These new essays ...

Constructivism and the Technology of Instruction: A Conversation
This book is about the implications of constructivism for instructional design practices, and more importantly, it is about a dialogue between instructional developers and learning theorists.

Social Constructivism as a Philosophy of Mathematics
State University of New York Press
Book by Ernest, Paul
Cambridge University Press, 2010
Realism and constructivism, two key contemporary theoretical approaches to the study of international relations, are commonly taught as mutually exclusive ways of understanding the subject.

There is indeed space to engage in a realist constructivism. But at the same time, ...
