PENA VERA, Tania. Concatenation of Constructivism with the Socio-Psycological Approach to the study of information unit users: a first theoretical approach. Investig. bibl [online]. 2005, vol.19, n.39, pp. 47-72. ISSN 0187-358X.
The main postulates of Constructivism and the Socio-Psychological approach are analyzed through documentary research in order to study the users of information units. Since some agreement was found, it was concluded that Constructivism is part of the theoretical basis on which the Socio-Psychological Approach stands, for both give special importance to context of the individual and to his previous knowledge as the necessary premise before starting any formative or informative action. Such integration of perspectives responds to the growing complexity of our cognition, which tends to diminish knowledge frontiers which formerly were handled separately.
