In this ground-breaking work, philosopher and cognitive scientist Andy Clark explores exciting new theories from these fields that reveal minds like ours to be prediction machines - devices that have evolved to anticipate the incoming streams of sensory stimulation before they arrive. These predictions then initiate actions that structure our worlds and alter the very things we need to engage and predict. Clark takes us on a rigorous journey in discovering the circular causal flows and the self-structuring of the environment that define the predictive brain. What emerges is a bold new vision that reveals the brain as our driving force in the daily surf through the waves of sensory stimulation.
