Laying Down a Forking Path

    • Free energy doesn't sit well with enaction.
    • He doesn't accept PP framework, it's not adaptive / creative enough
    • collapses organism/environment relationship
    • We argue that these assumptions contradict the historicity of agency and sense-making that is explicit in the enactive approach. Enactive concepts such as adaptivity and agency are defined in terms of the modulation of parameters and constraints of the agent-environment coupling, which entail the possibility of redefinition of variable and parameter sets and of the dynamical laws affecting a system, a situation that escapes the assumptions of FEP.
