I review several proposed solutions to what has been called the integration problem in psychiatry -- the problem of how to integrate different levels of analysis or different causal processes that include biological, psychological and social factors. I’ll argue that approaches that rely on the notion of different levels are problematic for several reasons. I also suggest that an enactive approach which defends the notion of an emergent, organizational fusion of factors (de Haan 2020) is equally problematic. In contrast, I develop an enactive model based on the concept of a dynamical causality. As a test case I show how the model would work to explain specific communicative deficiencies in Austism Spectrum Disorder.
