Abstract

This paper presents a critical evaluation of the impact of Maturana's constructivist approach to (systemic) family therapy. After an historical introduction and a brief description of the main ideas, a number of criticisms are considered. These concern the radical antirealist epistemology, and problems in dealing with the social context of the family and power relations within the family.
