I see Thomas has revived construction in philosophy after it was emptied a while ago from the initial spam. If it’s naming a piece of writing, i.e., by Schelling, we tend to capitilize. But perhaps it’s a more general development within philosophical logic. It would help to relate this entry to constructive mathematics.
In that we’re told its influence continues to our times through Dummett, etc., are we to think of that strand of constructivism which runs through to Martin-Lof? I recently noted him say
…mathematical knowledge through the construction of concepts, Ger. mathematische Erkenntnis durch die Konstucion der Begriffe, a splendid formulation which no doubt had a fruitful influence on Brouwer, and to my mind it is justifiable to say that intuitionism is a development of an essentially Kantian position in the foundations of mathematics. (Martin-Löof, Analytic and synthetic judgements in type theory, p. 99).
