The free-energy principle (FEP) is a formal model of neuronal processes that is widely recognised in neuroscience as a unifying theory of the brain and biobehaviour. More recently, however, it has been extended beyond the brain to explain the dynamics of living systems, and their unique capacity to avoid decay. The aim of this review is to synthesise these advances with a meta-theoretical ontology of biological systems called variational neuroethology, which integrates the FEP with Tinbergen'sdoi:10.1016/j.plrev.2017.09.001 pmid:29029962 pmcid:PMC5857288 fatcat:inhsfdidmvhhnigvb5ztumqiky
