I will address the way in which predictive coding theories of brain function might bear on the question of what our cognitive ontologies (or psychological taxonomies) are. To what extent does this theory force us to reevaluate our conceptions of the joints of nature with respect to concepts of the world and concepts of the mind? Is the theory consistent with more traditional ways of assigning function, or does it challenge them?
