Constructivists are not anarchic relativists; they will adjudicate between, say, the adequacy of the theory of evolution and that of "intelligent design," using as criteria each theory's congruence with and connectability to other stable, effective beliefs and its appropriability and extendability (guess which would win
nothing other than the logical principle of identity; but how far this might be extended is well beyond the scope of this paper, though one might reasonably surmise that its extendability would crucially depend upon the premise that logic describes non-linguistic reality accurately.
Along the lines of this interpretation, surely the possibility, extendability, and the degree of the bracketing proposed by Hegel in the Logic can be motive for debate (as a matter of fact, there are reasons to claim that contemporary philosophy lives on the rejection of the possibility of such presuppositionless bracketing off).
