Open peer commentary on the article “Towards a Dialogue Among Constructivist Research Programs” by Gastón Becerra & José Antonio Castorina. Upshot: Similar to the target article I address the following questions: (1) How can constructivism be defined and distinguished from non-constructivist approaches? (2) How can different constructivist approaches be brought into a dialogue despite their variety? My answers to these questions will differ from those of the authors.
