Constructivism and Relativism in Oakeshott

I’ve been thinking and writing about social constructivism for nigh on 20 years which was one of the primary motivations behind the setting up of EPISTEME to take on the tripe that was being peddled in philosophy departments, but had already well and truly infected departments with no philosophical culture, i.e. English, sociology, anthropology, gender and so on. So I thought I’d repost this piece despite the fact that it takes to task one of my intellectual heroes. Constructivism-relativism was thoroughly dubious then; now it is as vulgar as it gets.
