The Philosophy and Science of Predictive Processing(PDF)  explores how predictive processing, which debates that our brains are continuously generating and updating hypotheses about our external conditions, sheds new light on the nature of the mind. It demonstrates how it is similar to and expands other theoretical approaches that focus on the active role of the mind and its dynamic function.

Providing a complete guide to the philosophical and empirical implications of predictive processing, contributors bring perspectives from neuroscience, philosophy, and psychology. Together, they examine the many philosophical applications of predictive processing and its exciting potential across mental health, neuroscience, cognitive science, and robotics.

Presenting a balanced and extensive overview of the subject, The Philosophy and Science of Predictive Processing is a milestone volume within the philosophy of mind.
