Abstract

Open peer commentary on the article “Materialism and Selection Bias: Political Psychology from a Radical Constructivist Perspective” by Björn Goldstein. Abstract: Goldstein critically assesses assumptions of an ontic world in political psychology research and the role of beliefs in the context of efforts to achieve an “objective” understanding of political attitudes. While I can agree on the importance of radical constructivism and self-reflection in his assessment, I want to argue for further differentiation and clarification with respect to arguments from within radical constructivism and enhanced perspectives beyond.
