Open peer commentary on the article “Construction of Irreality: An Enactive-Constructivist Stance on Counterfactuals” by Andrey S. Druzhinin. Abstract: Schopenhauer and the two linguists, Tokieda and Miura, are indispensable figures to elucidate the logic of construction of our counterfactual experiences. In addition to the conditional and the subjunctive moods, the imperative could be regarded as a form of counterfactual experiences. According to Schopenhauer, these experiences belong mainly to the class of willing or acts of will.
