Open peer commentary on the article “Plasticity, Granularity and Multiple Contingency - Essentials for Conceiving an Artificial Constructivist Agent” by Manfred Füllsack. Upshot: This commentary aims to deepen the proposition made by Füllsack about the possibility of minimal constructivist agents from an enactive perspective. Even though I agree with the main purpose of his target article, I maintain that it could be interesting to go further and to introduce notions such as boundary, viability, multi-scale modelling and phenomenal domain separation. I also argue that the examples and models proposed in the target article are challenged by these concepts.
