Kirchhoff M. D. (2015) Experiential fantasies, prediction, and enactive minds. Journal of Consciousness Studies 22(3–4): 68–92. Fulltext at https://cepa.info/4907
A recent surge of work on prediction-driven processing models – based on Bayesian inference and representation-heavy models – suggests that the material basis of conscious experience is inferentially secluded and neurocentrically brain bound. This paper develops an alternative account based on the free energy principle. It is argued that the free energy principle provides the right basic tools for understanding the anticipatory dynamics of the brain within a larger brain-body-environment dynamic, viewing the material basis of some conscious experiences as extensive – relational and thoroughly world-involving.
