Abstract

Open peer commentary on the article “Towards a Dialogue Among Constructivist Research Programs” by Gastón Becerra & José Antonio Castorina. Upshot: The target article claims that constructivism should be regarded as a manifold movement, but not as a unique philosophical doctrine. This commentary evaluates the legitimacy of this claim.
