Abstract:

The current frequent use of the words ‘information’, ‘communication’, ‘representation’, and ‘meaning’ introduces misleading metaphors into some of our most important social interactions. The paper presents an outline of the constructivist approach to the underlying phenomena as a more adequate and productive way of thinking — it shows linguistic ‘meaning’ to be the result of individuals’ reflection upon their experience.
