Commentary on “Predictive Processing and Extended Consciousness”
Studies in Brain and Mind
We are grateful to Facchin and Negro (henceforth F&N) for their rich and generous engagement with our arguments for the hypothesis of the extended conscious mind (ECM). They offer a careful and insightful reconstruction of the key arguments from our 2019 monograph (Kirchhoff & Kiverstein, 2019a). In the end however they are not persuaded by the arguments of our book and raise a number of intriguing and puzzling challenges. We deal with each of their challenges and conclude that these challenges pose no problems for our arguments for the ECM in Kirchhoff & Kiverstein (2019a).
