Society for Constructivism
in the Human Sciences
Welcome to our website for the Society for Constructivism in the Human Sciences.
We are an international non-profit organization devoted to encouraging and communicating developments in theory, research, and practices in constructivism.
The unifying themes of our society express a view of human beings as "actively complex, socially-embedded, and dynamically developmental self-organizing systems." Among its emphases are the human need for meaning and the centrality of meaning change in personal and collective development.
There is also an appreciation of the integral interweaving of processes of embodiment, emotions, symbolic cognition, intersubjectivity, and practical action.
