DeCoded: The Experience Machine
On this episode of LAVNCH [CODE] DeCoded, author and professor of Cognitive Philosophy at the University of Sussex Andy Clark discusses his latest book, The Experience Machine: How Our Minds Predict and Shape Reality.
A brilliant new theory of the mind that upends our understanding of how the brain interacts with the world. For as long as we’ve studied human cognition, we’ve believed that our senses give us direct access to the world. What we see is what’s really there—or so the thinking goes.

Find out with his latest book, The Experience Machine, available on May 2, 2023.
