A blog to discuss the argument from reason.

One of the worst Wikipedia entries I have ever seen. Piaget, a brilliant scientist, is rolling over in his grave, being lumped in with the likes of these postmodernist flappers. It seems like they found every use of the word 'construction', such as Piaget's, and attempt to assimilate it to their strange relativistic worldview. Most naturalists don't subscribe to this nonsense.
And, indeed, most social constructionists are not naturalists!
I was wondering about that. However, some people have pursued naturalistic analyses of mind to the extent of rejecting some traditional conceptions in epistemology, and here I have Churchland in mind from his "pragmatist" days.
Good point. Some pragmatists (e.g., Rorty) and social construcivism have strong affinities.
