We challenge Firestone & Scholl's (F&S's) narrow conceptualization of what perception is and - most important - what it is for. Perception guides our (inter)actions with the environment, with attention ensuring that the actor is attuned to information relevant for action. We dispute F&S's misconceived (and counterfactual) view of perception as a module that functions independently from cognition, attention, and action.
