Open peer commentary on the article “A Critique of Barbieri’s Code Biology” by Alexander V. Kravchenko. Abstract: This commentary is largely congruent with the premises advanced by Kravchenko’s target article. It further develops the idea that humans operate in multiple domains of relational behaviour grounded in an ongoing mixture of systemic cognition, oral language, and written symbolic language. Cognition, and hence behaviour, is constrained differently in each of these overlapping modalities so that each affords a different set of understanding and action.
