Abstract: Gallagher addresses a wide range of topics from cognitive science and philosophy through a series of “enactivist interventions.” He contributes novel explanations in an erudite and highly readable manner. And yet the central conceptual problem of what it means to enact a world is not addressed explicitly enough.
