However, the four star rating reflects the fact that Kukla has done a thorough job of addressing various off-shoots of the nascent idea of constructionism and its development in modern times. I appreciate that when he has solid examples, he pulls them from numerous different disciplines rather than a single obscure area (like other philosophers). His explanations are very thoroughly articulated. I particularly liked the manner in which - in Chapter 13 - he delved into the problems with time for the causal constructionist.
A good read for those that are interested - from an academic perspective - in better understanding this emerging strain of thought.
