Open peer commentary on the article “A Critique of Barbieri’s Code Biology” by Alexander V. Kravchenko. Abstract: To talk of “code biology” is to change the meaning of the word code in a way that would be impossible if code were a unit of a code, i.e., encoded some fixed meaning. Code biology is in that respect and to that extent a self-refuting linguistic construct dependent on an understanding of language whose contradiction is implicit in the very existence of code biology.
