Constructivism in the Human Sciences
Constructivism in the Human Sciences is a unique periodical that serves important roles in the rapidly evolving dialogue among the sciences, the humanities, the health professions, and agencies devoted to promoting constructive changes in human activities.
Founded in 1996, the journal encourages broad and developmental inquiry into human consciousness, global community, and the dialectic between individual selves and collective systems.
The unifying themes of the journal 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.
Currently read in more than 30 countries, Constructivism promotes diversity of expression in topics, methods, and forms, creating a uniquely stimulating mixture that includes poetry, experiential narratives, laboratory research, field studies, creative inquiry, and theoretical conjectures.
Explorations of the relationship between inner and outer life are encouraged, as are interdisciplinary dialogue, historical contextualization, and multicultural perspective. Humor and heartfelt emotions are welcomed.
