German Idealism as Constructivism

German idealism has now receded into history. In part its legacy lives on in cognitive constructivism, which begins before and continues after it. The sixth and final chapter, “Cognitive Constructivism after German Idealism,” considers this approach as an alternative to more familiar intuitive and representational approaches to cognition, not in providing a full treatment—which lies beyond the limits of the present discussion—but rather in sketching the outlines of the kind of argument one might provide. I contend that cognitive constructivism remains a promising alternative to other, better known but perhaps less promising approaches.
