Dear Rob and colleagues,

I have been out of the list for a too long while. Now that I am back,
I read your message and thought that Joe Rychlak's "In defense of
human counsciousness" (Am. Psychol. Ass., 1997) might be of
some help for your need of philosophical grounding of constructivism.
Also the book "Human change processes" (Basic Books, 1991) by
Mike Mahoney has a substantial secion on this subject.

Take this as a quick response. I am sure of other existing works of
which I am not aware right now.

Best luck,
