The Free Energy Principle (FEP) is a mathematical model of the mind that

was put forward as a unificatory framework for the cognitive and life

sciences. In the panel discussion, we will critically examine this

thesis and discuss alternative interpretations of the FEP, either as a

model template or a model structure.
