Description: Is reality constructed by our own activity? Or, more provocatively, are scientific facts -- is everything -- constructed? Andre Kukla presents a comprehensive discussion of these philosophical issues and analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of a range of constructivist arguments, illustrating the divide between the sociology and the philosophy of science through examples as varied as laboratory science, time, and criminality. He argues that current philosophical objections to constructivism are drastically inconclusive, while offering and developing new objections. Throughout, Kukla distinguishes between the social causes of scientific beliefs and the view that all ascertainable facts are constructed.
