Constructionism defined by Husserl in 1910


‘In keeping with their respective habits of interpretation (herrschenden Auffassungsgewohnheiten), the natural scientist is inclined to regard everything as nature, whereas the investigator in the human sciences is inclined to regard everything as spirit, as a historical construct, and thus both thereby misinterpret whatever cannot be so regarded.’
Husserl, ‘Philosophy as Rigorous Science’, 1910, p. 253/294; Hua XXV 8-9.

The quotation can be found in this article: Dermot Moran (2011) Edmund Husserl’s Phenomenology of Habituality and Habitus, Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology, 42:1, 53-77
