Open peer commentary on the article “Education and 4E Cognition: Some Challenges at the Crossroads of Learning and Bildung” by Theo Hug. Abstract: An adequate integration of 4E cognition and education must take into account classic themes in educational theory, such as the learning vs. Bildung debate. 4E cognition, however, offers a plausible alternative to go beyond this antinomy.
