Open peer commentary on the article “Plasticity, Granularity and Multiple Contingency - Essentials for Conceiving an Artificial Constructivist Agent” by Manfred Füllsack. Upshot: In this commentary, I question the necessity of a recursive definition of agency, and I also examine the novelty of some proposed concepts such as plasticity, granularity, distinction, and irritation.
