Construct Page

The "Construct Page" feature on top of each page is actually an abbreviation for "Construct a page displaying all the entries in the Radical Constructivism database matching your search criteria".

How does it exactly work?

As for the search criteria, you can either search for single words in the title and description (and URL) of links, or for entries that have been added within a certain number of days, or both.

Leaving a field empty means that it does not contrain the search.

If you select "all terms" those entries will be displayed that contain all the words in your search query (Boolean AND search). An "any terms" search will show all links which contain at least one of the words in the query (Boolean OR). 14 Jan 2000

Also avoid common words such as "and", "the", etc as they appear in practically every link and will therefore cause the entire collection of links to be displayed.

Some practical examples:

Construct Page with entries containing all of these words Maturana Glasersfeld not older than [empty] day(s)
displays all links which contain the words "Maturana" AND "Glasersfeld".

Construct Page with entries containing any of these words Maturana Glasersfeld not older than [empty] day(s)
displays all links which contain the words "Maturana" OR "Glasersfeld".

Construct Page with entries containing all of these words [empty] not older than 5 day(s)
all newly added pages within the last 5 days regardless of their content -- useful to check what has changed since your last visit.

and finally
Construct Page with entries containing all of these words Glasersfeld not older than 5 day(s)
shows all "Glasersfeld" pages that have been added within the last 5 days.


Letter Icons

The tiny icons which can be found in most entries encode the language you'll encounter when following the link. Deliberatley I don't use country flags as they are symbols of nationalism rather than language. Here is what the icons mean.

English Italiano (Italian)
Deutsch (German) Español (Spanish)
Nederlands (Dutch) Français (French)
