Open peer commentary on the article “Loving the Earth by Loving a Place: A Situated Approach to the Love of Nature” by Laura Candiotto. Abstract: We argue that Candiotto demonstrates the virtues of enactive listening in a loving epistemology making an important contribution to the field of enactive ethics. Some critical considerations are put forward concerning the concept of participatory sense-making in the current literature and its applicability to a relationship with nature.
