Summary

A constructivist analysis of the concepts of communication and environment may go against the traditional ideas of realists. Both concepts are treated as subjective constructs of a cognizing agent. It is held that the basis of the constructivist theory of knowing as the idea that knowledge is a mapping of ways of acting and thinking and the result of an individual's own cognitive activity, and not a commodity residing outside the knower that can be conveyed by linguistic communication. This paper considers the concept of environment and the concept of communication from the epistemological view of constructivist philosophy as key concepts in a theory of knowing. (CW)
