Single Agents Can Be Constructivist Too

Olivier L. Georgeon and Salima Hassas 2013. Single Agents Can Be Constructivist too. Constructivist Foundations 9(1): 40-42.

In this open peer commentary to an article by Roesch et al.,  we wished to argue that multi-agent systems are not the only alternative to cognitivism. We present Ernest in Roesch et al.'s environment to show that Ernest is constructivist too.
