Andy Clark is guest blogging at Philosophy of Brains Blog. He is just now publishing his new book “Surfing Uncertainty: Prediction, Action, and the Embodied Mind”. Andy Clark is one of the most contempory adherents to the theory of the embodied mind. His thesis in the first blog entry is that the mind is a “multi-level prediction machinery”. The mind is perfoming high-level predictions onto a lower level of stimulations. That means that our knowledge plays an essential role for the workings of the mind. Especially prediction errors are seen to be important for tasks like learning. Sounds like a very interesting book and theory.
