Open peer commentary on the article “Materialism and Selection Bias: Political Psychology from a Radical Constructivist Perspective” by Björn Goldstein. Abstract: Goldstein reveals the beliefs underlying political psychology, thereby siding with the position of radical constructivism. I argue that the epistemological implications presented in the article require a different justification. It is not so much a question of emotional beliefs that can be neutralized, as it is a question of ultimately contingent distinctions.
