Upshot: We argue that the notion of basic perception could help to develop a general enactivist account of perception, without compromising the compatibility between our approach to this theory and the notion of weak representation. To support this, we elaborate on the contextual and normative aspects of our enactivist proposal, on perception, and on how these aspects may be crucial for understanding misrepresentation and comparability.
