Open peer commentary on the article “Enaction as a Lived Experience: Towards a Radical Neurophenomenology” by Claire Petitmengin. Upshot: I reflect and expand upon three aspects of Petitmengin’s illuminating article. After (a) contrasting existential (Petitmengin) and theoretical (Kirchhoff and Hutto) views of neurophenomenology, I (b) embed Petitmengin’s account of the experiential dissolution of the hard problem of consciousness into a larger framework by drawing parallels with previous experiments on unitive/non-dual experiences (Deikman). Finally, I (c) raise the question of how seriously we are willing to take the pragmatics of investigating and cultivating lived experience both in phenomenological research and in education and science in general.
