Constructivists tend to believe that people form expectations about the unknown from what they already know. The constructivist search for meaning is heavily embedded in the interpretive theories of the hermeneutic tradition, which goes back as far as Ancient Greece. The Concise Oxford Dictionary of English Etymology (Hoad, 2003) defines hermeneutics as the science of interpretation, the root of which is the Greek word herme¯neutike´¯, meaning interpreter.
