Open peer commentary on the article “What Is a Cognizing Subject? Construction, Autonomy and Original Causation” by Niall Palfreyman & Janice Miller-Young. Upshot: The goal of Palfreyman & Miller-Young is to characterize a particular kind of self-determining subject in a way that attempts to resolve divergence between realist, constructivist and enactive accounts. The divergences exist for a reason, and the subject in a realist framework cannot be equated with the subject as it features in an enactive account.
