Open peer commentary on the article “From Problem Solving to Problem Posing, and from Strategies to Laying Down a Path in Solving: Taking Varela’s Ideas to Mathematics Education Research” by Jérôme Proulx & Jean-François Maheux. Upshot: Problem solving should not be reduced to situated or localized activity since cognizers also draw on non-local resources that are not actually experienced but nevertheless impart on their situated cognition. A Varelian-inspired epistemology neglects this non-locality, which is a vital trait of human life.
