The article substantiates the idea of the emergence of constructivism in modern scientific practices as a result of reflective thematization of one's own experience. Some provisions of constructivism are analyzed in the context of a critical rethinking of classical notions of the "status of knowledge", which according to the article was supported by at least three main characteristics - objectivity, neutrality and universality of knowledge. The phenomenon of objectivity of knowledge is analyzed in the context of the causal justification of human experience. Certain arguments and weaknesses of this approach are considered. It is shown that the idea of objectivity of knowledge is problematized by the existence of a number of objects that have no other justification than the space of explanations, reasons and arguments constructed by certain orders of values. Opposition inner - outer space is interpreted as a Cartesian paradigm, which constitutes the theory of representations. In the tradition of constructivist methodology, the interpretation of experience as a justification of meaning is proposed. It is assumed that the identified trends in changing the status of knowledge, allow us to talk about the formation of a new (other) type of knowledge whose articulation is, in particular, constructivism.
