Upshot: This is the fourth book in a series called “Studies in Meaning,” all of which have the term “constructivist” in the title. However, if anyone is expecting to learn about “constructivism” as such they will be disappointed, as the contents, though often engaging, deal little with “constructivism” and instead range through a very disparate and dispersive collection of papers.
