Author's Response: Enactivism, Phenomenology, and Ontology: A Difficult Partnership

Constructivist Foundations 12 (3):309-315 (2017)

Konrad Werner

I focus on the relationship between the coalition of ideas including constructivism and enactivism on the one side, and ontology in general on the other. Based on a certain logico-phenomenological attitude that dominated Polish philosophy in the 20th century I argue that ontology as such is not burdened with realistic or representationalist presumptions. Finally, certain more specific issues raised by the commentators are also addressed, including the very usability of the notion of cognitive niche and its role when it comes to the problem of presentation.
