Initially, at the sensory-motor level, action schemes help “organisms to achieve goals in their interaction with the experiential world” (p. 128, emphasis added). At a second level, actions exist in an abstract form and help “organisms to achieve a coherent conceptual network that reflects the paths of acting as well as thinking which, at the organisms’ present point of experience, have turned out to be viable” (p. 128). That is, the ultimate point of learning is the production of structures, and this production is goal directed.

If the acting subject is thought on the basis of the intentional mind, then the question of the role of the body in knowing and learning poses itself. How does a mind that knows nothing about the world but only its constructions direct the body that is of the same kind as the world? What does the constructivist metaphor tell us about passivity that we experience in 1 The discourse of constructivist educators is actually ambivalent. Thus, the mathematics educator Pat Thompson told me that the construction does not have to be intentional (personal communication, September 9, 2010).

15) The systems of transformations constitute schemas. “Cognitive change and learning take place when a scheme, instead of producing the expected result, leads to perturbation, and perturbation, in turn, leads to accommodation that establishes a new equilibrium” (von Glasersfeld 1989a, p. 128). There is then a double instrumentalism at work. Initially, at the sensory-motor level, action schemes help “organisms to achieve goals in their interaction with the experiential world” (p. 128, emphasis added).
