Foundational Conversation "Whatever we make of the world must come from being related..." That everything is relational is the basic supposition that Gergen begins talking about in this conversation about the basic ideas that underlie social constructionism. Everything we talk about is from a set of relationships and each has itsí own vocabulary which will construct you differently. We can make language be a map. In the 20th century, the natural sciences became the "Keeper of the truth". Social construction attempts to have no one be the keeper of the truth. It undermines ideas of "truth" and is an invitation into a set of relationships. Kenneth J. Gergen is Mustin Professor of Psychology at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania. He is a major contributor to theory and research in social construction, and his writings treat a wide range of topics, including postmodernism, organizational process, education, technology, and the self.

Running Time: 40 minutes.

Ken Gergen is an Associate Editor of the American Psychologist and Theory and Psychology, as well as a co-founder of The Taos Institute. Among his most important works are Toward Transformation in Social Knowledge, The Saturated Self, Realities and Relationships and An Invitation to Social Construction.
