What realism about agents requires

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

Bruineberg et al. argue that the formal notion of a Markov blanket fails to provide a single principled boundary between an agent and its environment. I argue that one should not expect a general theory of agenthood to provide a single boundary; and the reliance on auxiliary assumptions is neither arbitrary or nor reason to suspect instrumentalism.
