Abstract

An adequate explication of miscomputation should do justice to the practices involved in the computational sciences. As relevant practices outside computer science have been overlooked, I begin to fill this gap by distinguishing different notions of miscomputation in computational psychiatry. I argue that a satisfactory explication of miscomputation in computational psychiatry should be grounded in the semantic view of computation, rather than in the mechanistic view. To the extent my argument is convincing, we should reconsider the adequacy of the mechanistic view of computation for illuminating some methodological and explanatory practices in computational cognitive neuroscience, as well as for individuating biological computing systems.
