Constructive gravity allows to calculate the Lagrangian for gravity, provided one previously prescribes the Lagrangian for all matter fields on a spacetime geometry of choice. We explain the physical and mathematical foundation of this result and point out how to answer questions about gravity that previously could not be meaningfully asked.
