Open peer commentary on the article “Constructivism and Computation: Can Computer-Based Modeling Add to the Case for Constructivism?” by Manfred Füllsack. Upshot: The environment is not slowly constructed by the agent but is an integral part of being an agent because both, agent and environment, are part of a closed loop system. By identifying the perturbations impacting on the loops, with the help of second-order cybernetics, the agent can identify them as its environment.
