Abstract

Commentary on:
Bruineberg, J., Dolega, K, Dewhurst, J. & Baltieri, M.(2021) The Emperor's new Markov
blankets. Behavioral and Brain Sciences, https://doi.org/10.1017/S0140525X21002351
Abstract:
I argue that there is no viable development of the instrumentalist Inference within a model
research program. I further argue that both Friston and Pearl blankets are not the right sort of
tool to settle debates on philosophical internalism and externalism. For these reasons, the
Inference within a model program is far less promising than the target article suggests
