As a form of reflectivist critique of the scientific approach to the study of social sciences, constructivism was initially developed as a mostly interpretive metatheory. Its substantial and wide-ranging influence perhaps derives from the fact that what it says seems to be just common sense. Its insights apply to our individual experiences in life; as individuals our identities change over time and so do our interests.
