Open peer commentary on the article “Constructivism and Mystical Experience” by Hugh Gash. Abstract: I explore some of the respective affinities and tensions between constructivism and mysticism. Through particular reference to Derrida’s philosophy of deconstruction, I focus on selected themes raised by Gash’s critique through an alternative lens of interpretation.
