I was pleasantly surprised by Bechtel's treatment of biological mechanisms as intrinsically active a point made with force by theorists of autopoietic enactivism like The Embodied Mind: Cognitive Science and Human Experience and Mind in Life: Biology, Phenomenology, and the Sciences of Mind. On the other hand, I struggled making it through the last chapter of the book dedicated to issues of free-will and selfhood. Though these are important problems, I felt that Bechtel's defense of compatibilism based in his mechanist outlook was not novel or interesting enough to warrant such a prolonged treatment.
