Glasersfeld E. von (1992) Constructivism reconstructed: A reply to Suchting. Science & Education 1: 379–384. Fulltext at
Excerpt: Under ordinary circumstances, an author faced with a long and detailed critique that dismisses his paper as mostly unintelligible and for the rest simply confused, should be devastated, if not silenced for ever. But the circumstances in the case at hand are not ordinary. W. A. Suchting calls his effort Constructivism Deconstructed and within the first six pages he provides an instructive example of his very own method of deconstruction. Though the traditional philosopher’s style of writing might deceive the unwary reader, Suchting’s method has the virtue of simplicity and will undoubtedly be effective – especially with readers who do not have access to the original piece.
