## Abstract

We present a constructive proof of a Stone-Weierstrass theorem for totally bounded metric spaces (SWtbms) which implies Bishop's Stone-Weierstrass theorem for compact metric spaces (BSWcms) found in [3]. Our proof has a clear computational content, in contrast to Bishop's highly technical proof of BSWcms and his hard to motivate concept of a (Bishop-)separating set of uniformly continuous functions. All corollaries of BSWcms in [3] are proved directly by SWtbms. We work within Bishop's informal system of constructive mathematics BISH.
