    The phrase is not riding in, but "riding on the recent popularity of various constructivist theories". "In particular" was the phrase inserted between "riding" and "on".

    Idiom: (one thing) makes inroads into something, meaning that the first thing has a noticeable effect on the second, especially by reducing the importance of it.

    Idiom: riding on something, depending on something

    riding in particular on the recent popularity of various constructivist theories

    特別是靠著近來建構主義理論的盛行
