Predictive coding, neo-Kantianism, and transcendental idealism

Tuesday, 24 January 2017, 5.30 PM, Nádor 15, Room 103


Recently, a number of neuroscientists and philosophers have taken the so-called prediction error minimization theory to support a form of radical neuro-representationalism, according to which the content of our conscious experiences is a neural construct, a brain-generated simulation. There is remarkable similarity between this account and ideas found in and developed by German neo-Kantians in the mid-19th century. Even more importantly, some neo-Kantians eventually came to have serious doubts about the cogency and internal consistency of the model. In my talk, I argue that this criticism has implications for our assessment of the contemporary theory as well.
