But in cultural and biological evolution, order arises from mechanisms for generating variation to which is applied mechanisms for selection. Reason is good at providing variation but very poor at selection, that is, constructivism is a powerful engine for generating variation, but it is far too limited and inflexible in its ability to comprehend and apply all the relevant facts in order to serve the process of selection, which is better left to ecological trial and error processes. These themes I want to illustrate and discuss in several examples and I’ll be drawing on learning from experiments as well as field observations to illustrate how the contrast between constructive and ecological rationality informs learning from observation.

This raises the issue of the level at which processes are modeled and what ancillary data should and could be marshaled in their support. One clue to this question was provided by Einhorn, Kleinmuntz, and Kleinmuntz [26] who showed that simple linear models are capable of mimicking the more complex processes that are typically represented by so-called process-tracing models. This, in turn, suggests that process-tracing models may be mimicking more complex, underlying psycho-physiological models of information processing.

Airline route deregulation in the United States occurred in the late 70s and early 80s. Airline route deregulation brought an unanticipated reorganization of the network called the hub-and-spoke system. What’s interesting about that is that this seems to be an ecologically rational response anticipated by none of the constructivist arguments for deregulation and predicted by no one. In fact, when it emerged people were wondering how that had happened and wondering why. Nor could it have been uncovered, I submit, in 1978 by opinion surveys of airline managers or by marketing surveys of the airline customers.
