Open peer commentary on the article “Constructivism as a Key Towards Further Understanding of Communication, Culture and Society” by Raivo Palmaru. Upshot: Palmaru addresses several problems with respect to radical constructivism, in particular the relationship between the micro-level and macro-level of social phenomena, i.e., communication, culture, and society. Related to this, I dispute three of Palmaru’s key claims: (1) the relationship between micro-social and macro-social phenomena is a specific problem of radical constructivism; (2) radical constructivism does not solve the problem of the micro-macro-link; (3) the author’s solution to the respective problem is necessary and sufficient.
