Subject: Radical Constructivism and media
Dear Prof. Glasersfeld
How does the explosion of media in our environment affect
Also, what effect does media have on shared reality?
The short answer to your first question is: the onslaught of
the media makes for the elimination of differences in
individual thinking and ideas, especially in the younger
victims. I have not dealt specifically with this problem.
Prof.Dr. Siegfried Schmidt (University of Münster, <firstname.lastname@example.org>)
has and i suggest you ask him for one of his books in a
language you read.
My reaction to your second question is implied by my first
answer: individual realities become more uniform - but they
are never shared in the sense that yours and others' are the
same. It is always you who constructs what you believe to be
