Open peer commentary on the article “Constructivism, Fast Thinking, Heuristics and Sustainable Development” by Hugh Gash. Abstract: I argue that a radical constructivist approach might focus on providing us with what I call “tamed heuristics.” This would make our fast and intuitive evaluation more reliable in that it leads to more viable outcomes. I also consider the question of why this should be an interesting enterprise when we also could try to get rid of heuristics as far as possible and replace them with instances of thoroughly, careful slow thinking, instead.
