According to the passage, what is discursive constructivism?
This answer choice incorrectly suggests that language creates our ideas about the world; however, the passage states language is the means by which those ideas are expressed, i.e., it is the result of these ideas.
According to the passage, language does not reflect reality - language creates reality.
While the passage does discuss the distortion of reality as perceived by feminists, this is not a part of the definition of discursive constructivism, which includes no judgment regarding distorted perceptions.
Preconceived notions (perceptions) form our words and linguistic constructs (language), which in turn create reality.
Although it is true that language shapes reality, this is not the full definition of discursive constructivism as given in the passage. According to the passage, discursive constructivism also believes that language itself is an expression of our perception.
