Open peer commentary on the article “What Is a Cognizing Subject? Construction, Autonomy and Original Causation” by Niall Palfreyman & Janice Miller-Young. Upshot: Palfreyman and Miller-Young claim that their theory should be capable of accounting for whether robots are inherently autonomous or not. Unfortunately, they fail to elaborate on how and to what extent they consider robotic autonomy to fit within their framework. I allude to what phenomena and modelling approaches may contribute to the imbuing of autonomy in robots.
