Subject: Questions to Ernst von Glasersfeld
if we accept the analogy between theory of evolution & the
viable cognitive structures, can we conclude that it is not
"thinking subject " who makes a "key " to the "lock" , but the
"lock" shapes the "key" ?
So that man is not responsible for his thinking
but the nature has led it this way....or so ....
It seems a bit confusing. I've read
your " introduction to Radical constructivism" and I can't
relate the first part to the second one, as i mentioned above.
Dear Mr. Shibam (?),
Constructivism uses the Darwinian concept of fitness that is
part of the theory of evolution to illustrate and describe the
concept of viability. It does not incorporate evolution
as a natural law or ontological principle. That is what
evolutionary epistemologists have done. For a
constructivist, the theory of evolution is an explanatory
model that helps to coordinate and systematize experience; it
has no more "reality" than any other theoretical model. Hence
you will have to take the responsibility for what you do and
think and you cannot blame genes or natural history.

Dear Mr. DELFIRIO GONZALEZ CRUZ,
This website accepts questions in English, Italian, German,
and French. I do not know
Spanish. But I gather from your e-mail that you are requesting
personal information about myself. The first chapter of my
1995 book contains that sort of information. It has been
translated into several languages and you will find a
