Cariani P. (2016) Learning of New Percept-Action Mappings Is a Constructive Process of Goal-Directed Self-Modification. Constructivist Foundations 11(2): 322–324. Fulltext at
Open peer commentary on the article “Perception-Action Mutuality Obviates Mental Construction” by Martin Flament Fultot, Lin Nie & Claudia Carello. Upshot: In my view, the clash between ecological psychology, enactivism, and constructivism in general has more to do with irreconcilable metaphysical and theoretical incommensurabilities (ontologies, epistemologies, modes of explanation) than disagreements about specific mechanisms or processes of perception. Even with mutual enabling of action and perception, some internal process of self-modification (neural construction, learning) is still needed if novel behavior is to be adequately explained.
