In his engaging and provocative target article, Jarvilehto (1998) argues that the senses are not transmitters of environmental information so much as connections that support dynamic organism-environment systems. I think there is much to applaud in this treatment, but I want to raise two small doubts: one concerning the nature of the target (why information transmission rather than inner model-building?) and the other concerning the scope of the claim (is sensing always and only used in the way the author suggests?).
