%X 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: The significance of Proulx and Maheux’s target article lies in their thorough grounding of some of the ideas of the mathematical problem-posing and problem-solving literature in a strong theoretical framework. They direct our attention to two distinct epistemological assumptions that underlie explanations of problem-solving: the so-called “selection-then-execution hypothesis” and Varela’s problem-posing perspective. In this commentary, I will offer two ways their line of research could be extended.
