Glasersfeld E. von (2000) On ethics. ASCD Systems Thinking and Chaos Theory News Letter July: 3–4. Fulltext at
When we speak of things which, as Wittgenstein said, cannot be spoken of, we inevitably say things that in some ways are wrong. In writing (as I did several times) that the constructivist approach to knowing provides an epistemological basis for ethics, because it justifies the need for others, I clearly stepped on dangerous ground. The statement was open to (and has occasioned) interpretations I did not intend. I am anxious to correct this.
Key words: philosophy, ethics
