Abstract: Di Paolo, Cuffari and De Jaegher positively address the challenging goal of giving an enactive explanation of language. The construction of the book is itself building within enactive theory, because of how it brings a step-by-step constructing bridge in enactive theory by scaling up its theories from basic minds to specifically human minds. The only problem is that everything in the book lies in the primordial tension that sensorimotor enactivism establishes, which is basically individualistic, and there are no responses to possible objections to this.
