Implementation of DEvelopmentAl Learning (IDEAL) Course
3. Constructivist epistemology »
Selected readings on constructivist epistemology for artificial intelligence
- An excellent introduction to constructivism in artificial intelligence:
Riegler A. (2007) The radical constructivist dynamics of cognition.
In: Wallace, B. (ed.) The Mind, the Body and the World: Psychology After Cognitivism? Imprint: London, pp. 91-115.
- Unfortunately, the English Wikipedia article on Constructivist epistemology
is quite poor as compared to the French article which is excellent.
I wonder if that is indicative of the relative weakness of American research in constructivist artificial intelligence.
For those who can't read French, I would recommend trying to get a sense of the French article from an automatic translation
rather than reading the English article.
- A nice argument in favor of constructivist learning in robotics, which paraphrases
Piaget's famous book, is:
Ziemke T. (2001). The Construction of 'Reality' in the Robot: Constructivist Perspectives on Situated Artificial Intelligence and Adaptive Robotics.
Foundations of Science, special issue on "The Impact of Radical Constructivism on Science", edited by A. Riegler, 2001, vol. 6, no. 1-3: 163-233.
- For those who do read French, I hightly recommend
Jean-Louis Le Moigne (1995).
Les épistémologies constructivistes
Que sais-je? Presse Universitaire de France.
This short book discusses constructivist epistemology from a philosophical perspective, making it a helpful initial guide to constructivist thought and design.
This ends Lesson 3.
The participants of the IDEAL MOOC
may go back to their session in Claroline Connect
to answer a questionnaire about Lesson 3 and about the trace in Table 35.
