New directions in predictive processing

Overview of recent philosophically oriented predictive processing research. Created by Jakob Hohwy. 

Collection details

Overview of recent philosophically oriented predictive processing research. A selective sample taken mid-2019, based on a manual search of research on ‘predictive processing’ and ‘prediction error minimisation’; focused on research published by philosophers, or in philosophy journals, or on philosophical topics. In addition, some references to introductory papers, tutorials, historical sources, and a limited, illustrative sample of empirical work illustrating connections to philosophical debates. The Collection includes research where the main focus is predictive processing, mostly excluding research where predictive processing is a subtheme.

Contemporary approaches Predictive processing; philosophical treatments; commentaries (Clark, 2013) including Commentaries as well as additional Commentaries in the Frontiers Research Topic on Forethought as an evolutionary doorway to emotions and consciousness, and Clark’s responses in both Behavioural & Brain Science and Frontiers.
