This book explores how predictive processing, which argues that our brains are constantly generating and updating hypotheses about our external conditions, sheds new light on the philosophy of mind. It shows how it is similar to and expands other theoretical approaches that emphasize the active role of the mind and its dynamic function.
Offering a complete guide to the philosophical implications of predictive processing, contributors bring perspectives from philosophy, neuroscience and psychology. Together, they explore the many philosophical applications of predictive processing and its exciting potential across mental health, cognitive science, neuroscience and robotics.
Presenting an extensive and balanced overview of the subject, The Philosophy and Science of Predictive Processing is a landmark volume within philosophy of mind.
