Damien: In affirming a (sophisticated) social constructivism in 
epistemology, do you mean:

(a) our means of perceiving and understanding knowledge are socially 
(b) truth itself is a social construction (and not just in obvious 
cases such as what is "polite")

And if it's (a), would I be right to suspect that your view is that 
we can understand and allow for the resulting filtering? (As 
distinguished from the view that we're permanently and hopelessly 
locked behind our socially constructed lenses?
