- Dear Prof. Dr. von Glasersfeld,
This question seems double, but it is about the same thing:
Can you tell me what "learning" (apprendimento) means for you?
For a radical constructivist learning is always a matter (and
responsibility, is it correct?) of individuals: everything we can
learn and construct, it's always a work which cannot be made by
external subjects (educational agencies, for example).
But, I ask you, can you better explain me what happens if, as I think,
the "words to see" the shared human world come from the society, and not
from ourselves? Words to create our worlds, they come from the human
Although once we've interiorized our communicative system, we seem to
have the power to create infinite worlds, even totally different ones
from our original culture. (But this way brings us to creativity, which
is not not the focus of my question...)
