Boyd R. (1992) Constructivism, realism and philosophical method. In: Earman J. (ed.) inference, explanation and other frustrations. University of California Press, Berkeley: 131–198. Fulltext at
Excerpt: In the present essay I will be concerned with the dispute between constructivism and realism. I have three aims: to articulate the best arguments for realism against sophisticated versions of constructivism, to explore the implications of those arguments for our understanding of the issue of conventionality generally, and to explore some broader issues of philosophical method which are raised by the dispute between realists and constructivists.
