My claim is that, if we understand the function of the brain in terms of the free energy principle, then the brain can explain the mind. Harkness discusses some objections to this claim, and proposes a cautious way of solidifying the explanatory potential of the free energy principle. In this response, I sketch a wide, diverse, and yet pleasingly Bayesian conception of scientific explanation. According to this conception, the free energy principle is already richly explanatory.doi:10.15502/9783958570870 fatcat:fnjzdu5nazfqthlucrcjxewztu
