Open peer commentary on the article “Constructivism and Mystical Experience” by Hugh Gash.: Gash follows a prescient argument concerning constructivism and mysticism. Mysticism may equate to noetic religious, spiritual, and mystical experiences involving subjectivity and objectivity, and people experience “faith” or belief in the deity, which involves intellection, conceptual discrimination, decision-making and a range of technical, rational and intellectual tools. Von Glasersfeld’s assumptions, and those of other constructivists are, not so far removed from mystical theological approaches to the deity.
